And don’t worry, you can still enjoy sweeping views of the river and historic St. Charles on the other side! Click here for a map of the closure.

Things To Do
This 4.73-mile paved trail is mostly sunny with close to 3 miles of shade in the portion through Riverwoods Park. Due to multiple flooding events, the middle section of the Riverwoods Trail along the Missouri River is now permanently closed. The greenway within the park is still open as an out-and-back path, but you will need to turn around at the points of closure. It is a quiet and peaceful trail tucked away along the Missouri River. It is a great trail for young children to ride their bikes or walk because it is flat and less crowded. It will appeal to anyone looking for a quiet, more rural paved trail for walking or bike riding. On the northern end of the greenway at 370, you can connect to a new separated walking and biking lane that will take you over the Missouri River where you can connect to the KATY Trail.
