Things To Do
You can fish all along the trail on the Meramec River. Meramec Landing Park and Greentree Park provide the easiest access to the river. You can also fish on the lake at Simpson Park.
The Meramec River and surrounding wetland areas attract a wide variety of wildlife.
You can launch your boat on the Meramec River at the boat ramps in Meramec Landing Park and Greentree Park. You can launch your boat on the lake in Simpson Park using the boat ramp on the west end of the lake. Check out the map of Simpson Park here to learn where the boat dock is.
This 3.64-mile paved trail travels between Greentree Park in Kirkwood and the Arnold’s Grove trailhead atop the levee in the City of Valley Park. It is flat and shady with some up close views of the Meramec River. It is an ideal trail for new cyclists and we often recommend it for families with small children because of the shade, slower pace and many places to stop along the way.
