Boschert Greenway

New Town to Historic St. Charles to Katy Trail

The section of Boschert Greenway between Boschertown Road and New Town Boulevard will be closed for repairs on Thursday, September 24 and Friday, September 25. Large sections of asphalt will be replaced, so you will not be able to detour around this area.  Please explore other trails or greenways as we work to give you a smooth walk or ride!

The Boschert Greenway is in St. Charles County and links the Missouri River and  Katy Trail, goes through Historic Downtown St. Charles, through Fox Hill Park and up to New Town, a planned community within the city of St. Charles. You can also connect to St. Louis County and the Missouri Greenway: Earth City Levee via a new protected walking and biking path on the 370 Discovery Bridge.

Trail Info

5.45 Miles

The paved Boschert Greenway trail stretches 5.45 miles between New Town, Fox Hill Park, Little Hills Expressway and Highway 370. It is mostly flat and sunny. From 370 you can follow a bike path along the Fifth Street Extension, turn left on Olive street and connect with the KATY Trail. You can also cross over the Missouri River via a protected path for walking on biking on the 370 Discovery Bridge. Once you cross the river, there is a direct connection to the Missouri Greenway: Earth City Levee. The 25-acre Fox Hill Park has two picnic shelters, a playground, restrooms and two interconnected lakes.

Along the way you will see the “Living Wall” of native grasses and the popular bicycle art sculpture called “Blomstre.” Created by Maplewood, Missouri artist Andrew Andrasko, the 30-foot tall “flower” is made of bike wheels with bike frame petals. Please note that the Fifth Street Extension of the Boschert Greenway Trail is more of a wide sidewalk, but it is separated from the roadway.
