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.

Easy access to Grant's Farm parking lot with a place to lock up the bikes. Trail is flat and easy for all ages.
