It also extends over Highways 364 and 94 so you can safely walk or ride a bike across these busy highways to get where you need to go. The greenway travels along Page Avenue and residential neighborhoods in St. Charles County. It also runs parallel to Old Highway 94 (between Muegge and Hackman Rd), to Hackmann Rd and McClay Rd where it connects to the Spencer Creek Trail. There are several flat stretches on this greenway, but there is a long, steady and moderately steep hill between Upper Bottom Road and the Heritage Museum.
