No no and no. Trash, weird smells, pets not picked up after, brush not tended to, inconsiderate cyclists ride up behind you with no warning. I’m very disappointed in this St. Louis County Park. One star for being on the river for a portion, another star for the widely paved walkway. I’m hoping I just caught it at a bad time, but I was not impressed unfortunately.

This trail is great for someone who's just starting to get back into shape. I think it was really boring. I wouldn't recommend going past river city casino; you can't really see the river after that. There were a lot of bicyclists speeding by, so it is not ideal for taking multilevel dogs. Granted, I did this in late winter, I can only imagine that with the foliage it might be a little better?

This is a pretty straightforward walking trail with not a lot of traffic. It the perfect place for a quick walk after work, and for some birding.

HikingGreat!

A nicely paced quiet hike along the Mississippi River. A lot of the river view is obstructed by the foliage along a chain link fence but you can get glimpses of it. The warm morning brought out some singing birds and you can hear the river splashing along the barges and banks.

Great trail! Kid and pet friendly! It’s an easy trail. There isn’t any water stations or restrooms once your on the trail! Lots of hidden paths to take you down to the river!

More walking trail than hiking, but still very pleasant. Nice winter views of barges on the river and the remains of river commerce infrastructure along the banks. Easy, paved trail with minor inclines. Keep your eyes peeled for groundhogs feasting near the path!

Pretty nice and a very easy trail. Doesn’t seem like it’s maintained too much towards the end but overall a nice experience. Lots of wildlife on our mid-morning walk such as deer, groundhogs, cardinals.

Trail is not hard at all. There’s a slight (and I mean slight) hill. Scenery was great, it was not congested, and an extremely smooth loop.
