The Ulysses S. Grant Trail (Grant's Trail) is an 8 mile long "rails to trails" bike trail stretching through south and southwest St. Louis County, Missouri. As a former railroad right of way, Grant's Trail is flat and perfect for biking, running, inline skating, walking, or cross-country skiing. Point to point from Orlando's to I-44

I love this trail to run on. It’s quiet, not crazy busy and it’s pretty throughout most of the year!

A nice, flat pavement for a run, walk, or bike ride as short or as long as you’d like! 60 degree weather in January made this perfect today.

A must run! Long trail that’s paved and extremely well maintained throughout the year. Awesome views of Grant’s Farm and the Clydesdales. Bathrooms are closed in the winter. Multiple places where you have to wait for traffic to stop to cross the road. My go to when I need a long run.

Nice urban trail. Runs from I44 to I55. Paved the entire trail. Lots of cross traffic. Good for biking, walking or running.

Grant's Trail is a popular paved trail good for running, walking, roller blading, and cycling in a suburban setting. It is not a nature hiking trail per se, though it connects to a few short ones near Blake Snyder Park. The trail is level and miles are marked, so it is useful for distance training. Cyclist should beware of children, dogs, and the clueless during busy times. One can get up close and personal with the world famous Budweiser Clydesdales by Grant's Farm.

There's is nothing about this place that feels like hiking so I would take that off of the description. I'm sure it's good for a bike ride but it's not that scenic.

Paved trail, great for walking, biking, and rollerblading. The trail has a gradual downhill slope starting in Kirkwood. They do no clear the trail of snow or ice.

I completed part of this trail while visiting Grant's farm. Very pretty place, can be a lot of people on weekends.
