It rained the day before we went so there were a few muddy spots, but nothing bad. Easy enough to do with my 3 kids - age 9,7&5. Not a lot to climb on but the trail was nice and shaded and a good hike.

Trailhead parking and access closed.. had to find paid parking in lacledes Landing. Otherwise, nice walk.

The Archgrounds and riverfront are a great place for some easy, scenic jogging. Great scenery if it is a nice day. You can watch this video I recorded of a run here to get the idea of what to expect https://youtu.be/MOnz3tDDCkM

The arch is amazing to go and see. As is the old courthouse and the area nearby. If you’re in St. Louis this is a must!

If you’re visiting St Louis, you’re likely to stroll through this park. From views of the churning River, subtle skyline juxtaposed against the most miraculous contemporary shape that is the arch, it’s easy to see why this area draws attention. The city has done a lot of good for this area in recent years. Cheers to Missouri for entering the National Park big leagues

Nice little park! Beautiful views of the arch. The trees are changing colors this time of year. Go Cardinals.

Beautiful Park. the park has nice grassy areas and trees. The arch is great and there are very good views of the city.

Enjoyable walk along the Missouri river with good views of the river and the city.

Beautiful national park. Very well kept. Views of city, Arch, and river.

Walked downtown riverfront, flat and scenic, enjoyable and I felt safe by myself in this area. Trail closed north of Lumiere hotel due to flood damage... you can navigate around it but some bicyclists recommended to do that only with a buddy, very downtown industrial. Outside of the city, this would be a great trail to walk or bike. Enjoy STL :-)

A great trail, and doable for beginners, despite its length. I haven’t done it since last year (I think it’s currently washed out), but I highly recommend it. If going in the summer, be sure to bring sunscreen and lots of water. One bottle of water didn’t cut it for me. It gets HOT when riding along in the sun with minimal shade. Despite several drinking fountains, only one or two work (which is partly why I don’t give it 5 stars. The working ones are also close to downtown STL which do you little help when you’re way down closer to the Chain of Rocks bridge. But, even if you’re a beginner biker, it’s worth the ride. Highly recommend!

It would have been neat but the trail is currently under water.

Beautiful park around the Gateway Arch. The Arch is incredible and the views from the top of the Arch are amazing.

Beautiful ride ! Enjoyed the view and the conditions of the trail was excellent..

Nice paved trail along the river. This trail is moderately to heavily populated depending on when you go. Some spots are nice and can view the river. The rest of the trail is very industrial. There is a great free bike stop along the trail that has maps, water, and can help with bike fixes like; air, patches, and inner tubes. This spot made the trail earn the extra star.

Arch and homeless. That's all I have to say. If you want drugs, take this trail. Also, there is a big curved Arch.

Nice little walk by the waterfront. Good amount of people out and about.

There's the Arch! Looking forward to the development to be completed.

I love this park for walking. it's peaceful and enjoyable especially in the fall. Deer everywhere in the park.

I can now use my other hand to count how many times I've been on a bike in 15 years. So it's definitely beginner-friendly, but the length can make it challenging! Around the arch it gets congested with people but very quickly becomes almost deserted. Just follow the signs for the trail and it's easy to find your way. Cool grafitti, great riverfront views, and you can get up close to every bridge that comes across the Mississippi. Can't wait to do it again!

love the arch and grounds, visited 2 different times

With the grounds of the Arch under renovation, it can get very hot in a Missouri Summer.

lots to see East for beginner's

Great biking trail - not the best for hiking... all paved, but the new river front section is amazing.

Nice walk along the river while going to the arch and visiting the downtown area. Great little walk, but as mentioned, they are doing a lot of work in the area.

Nice walk thru the city.

This trail is under construction & most of it is closed until 2017.
