Arrow Rock, Mo. Take Van Buren street to the east end. It stops at the trail head of the River Landing Trail. You take the River Landing trail to the bottom of the ridge, Cross the foot bridge, and you are on the Discovery trail. Follow it to the river and return.
Very neat trail that ends at the river. Nice and wide and covered in gravel except for the last 100 yards or so which can flood if the river is high.
I happened upon this short (approx. 1 mile) trail after hiking other parts of Arrow Rock. I was absolutely delighted to end up at the Mighty Missouri River! The trail is wide and flat and very pretty. Seeing the River was a bonus. I'll definitely return.
Simple walk to the river. Not a destination hike, but worth stretching your legs while visiting Arrow Rock.
