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