St. Joseph Riverwalk Description

The St. Joseph Riverwalk, sometimes referred to as the Riverfront Trail, hugs the eastern bank of the Missouri River in this northwestern Missouri community. The paved pathway spans just over two miles from Heritage Park, through Riverfront Park, and south to Robidoux Landing. Along the way, travelers can enjoy scenic overlooks and interpretative signage about Native Americans and Joseph Robidoux (for whom the city was named).

A popular trailside attraction is the Remington Nature Center, which offers educational displays on Native American culture and the region's plant and wildlife species, including a 7,000-gallon fish aquarium.

If you're up for more riding, the Riverwalk is only about 1.5 miles west of the city's sprawling Urban Trail network.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking and bathrooms are available at the northern end of the trail in Heritage Park (2202 Water Works Road). A little farther south, parking is also available at the Remington Nature Center (2502 McArthur Drive).
