This .4-mile section of the Missouri Greenway parallels the Missouri River near the St. Stanislaus Conservation Area and Koch Park. The trail lies partially within the city of Hazelwood in north St. Louis County and is comprised of river bottom lands, parks, fields and residential areas.
The trailhead is located in Truman Park, near the intersection of North Lindbergh Boulevard (Highway 67) and I-270 on Howdershell Road in Hazelwood.
This section of the greenway is mostly shady, with some rolling hills, and it is a quiet and peaceful place to walk, ride a bike or just sit and enjoy the sounds of birds chirping in the woods.
Those using the greenway can enjoy views of Audubon Creek from the bridge along the trail.
Some wildlife can be spotted in the 36-acre Truman Park, and the park also offers a playground, two pavilions, a volleyball court, a sports field, horseshoe pits, picnic sites, grills and a fishing pond.
There is a paved trail, almost a half-mile in length, that extends from the fishing pond, north toward the St. Stanislaus Conservation Area, but the Missouri Greenway does not yet connect to that trail.
The Missouri Greenway is open year-round. Please note that the trail is not plowed of snow or ice.
There is no fee to visit the greenway.
The trail is mostly flat and accessible to wheelchairs.
There is parking at a trailhead near Truman Park Pond.
