Recreational Opportunities

This Earth City Levee Trail in the Missouri Greenway is a quiet and peaceful trail tucked away along the Missouri River. It is great for young children – who are either walking or riding their bikes – 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.

The greenway offers shade in the portion that runs through Bridgeton’s Riverwoods Park. Visitors can enjoy the surrounding nature, including beautiful views of the river and the abundant wildlife found in the wetland forest. There are also restrooms, drinking fountains and picnic tables.

The portion of the greenway that runs along the Earth City Levee is perfect for those who want to take advantage of the sunshine and wide-open vistas as they walk or ride their bikes along the trail to the trailhead located just past the Highway 370 Bridge.
