I walks this trail several times a year... since it is only about a mile from my house. It is not the typical hiking trail since it is paved all the way to the Missouri River. It is a great family walk/hike to the river. A must see when the river is low, kids can go out on the rocks and play!! Would definitely recommend this for families!!
i grew up with the old Sunset Park...it felt weird for me to walk down a golf cart path...i was pretty disappointed with the expirience.any how...if you aren't going for the view of the Sunset St. Stanilaus is much better...
Paved walking trail down to the river. Downhill the way to the river and up the whole way back. Go here all the time at sunset. Great place to go and relax when the river is low you can go out on the rocks in the middle of the river. Construction is over now so it's always open.
For what it is, this is a great trail. It's nicely paved, short, and clean. The best part is that it is very kid friendly and animal friendly. There's not anything special really, no cool creeks, or awesome trees to climb. Just a short paved hike with a single scenic view of the Missouri River at the bottom.
One fun fact: it's downhill the whole way out, and uphill the whole way back.
Great trail. It is paved and has some good hills. The view of the river is nice, however the trail is almost always closed off due to some construction. So be prepared to turn around.
Trail is apart of the Great Rivers Greenway system. The trail is paved and kid friendly. Trail was clean, well maintained. Out and back style, the trail is a challenge because of the elevation. Nice scenery, nice view of the Missouri River.
