Wheelchair & handicap friendly trails. Mostly flat & paved. Can be crowded on weekends & holidays.

Much of the pathways are treeless, and can be very hot late spring thru early fall or very windy and cold during winter.

Weekends are least crowded in winter.

Easy hike but a fun place. It's long but easy.

paved - lots of bikers and runners. Great for a day outside for an easy walk or a nice run with the dog.

Super easy, fully paved for the loop around the lake. There is an unpaved part that goes through a wooded area and circles back around. Aside from the wooded area, the path is largely unshaded. The trails are usually VERY crowded with runners, bikers, and walkers, so just be aware. It is best to go on the week day, as weekends can become VERY congested.

I prefer to walk the Mallard lake trail. It is gravel and has tree cover. I park at the lakehouse cafe and start there so I can grab a bite to eat after.
The lake itself is nice. Very busy and lots of mosquitoes during the season.

Crazy busy trail. Lots of traffic noise. I always seem to encounter at least one inconsiderate person, usually with a dog. Very bottom of my trail list.

I really like this trail, the views are nice, very well kept asphalt for bikes, roller blades, etc. On a recent day, the wind was gusting to 37 mph, waves remind me of the ocean. I park by the 364 bridge is St Charles, than trek to the lake, very pleasant...

Great for getting in a few miles post-work. It is always crazy crowded but that can sometimes be a positive when going solo as a female. No great scenery and easy paved & flat path. Does the job when I plan on using the treadmill but the weather is beautiful and decide I want to enjoy it. ;)

Nice flat path and scenic. If your looking for solitude this may not be for you. Very popular and always busy, not overly crowded but a good stream of walkers, runners, bikers, and roller bladers. One of my favorite places for an evening walk. Bring the bug spray!!

This is a nice and fairly scenic walk around the biggest natural lake in Missouri.
