St. Vincent Greenway: St. Vincent County Park to UMSL to North Hanley MetroLink

This northern section of the St. Vincent Greenway extends 5.5 miles from the area just south of the North Hanley MetroLink Station in Pagedale to the University of Missouri-St. Louis Campus. The section that crosses the UMSL campus is named the Wayne Goode Trail in honor of the famed Missouri legislator. It ties together the north and south campuses of the college, and connects greenway users to St. Vincent County Park and the Ted Jones trail, a 2.2-mile off-road portion of the North County Bikeway that links to Old Town Ferguson. The greenway is an easy way to directly access MetroLink and enjoy everything St. Vincent County Park has to offer.

Recreational Opportunities

The St. Vincent Greenway is ideal for walking and bicycling. You can walk or ride bikes to the athletic fields, St. Vincent Community Center, pool and playground in St. Vincent Park. The historic St. Vincent Hospital still stands within the park (it has since been transformed into apartments), and interpretive signage detailing the building’s past is accessible to visitors. There is also a boardwalk that provides views of Engelholm Creek.

Even though this greenway is in St. Louis County, it feels a bit rural. Visitors can travel through the lush and shady grounds of St. Vincent County Park and across the rolling hills of the University of Missouri-St. Louis (UMSL) campus. The greenway can be accessed from the Rock Road, North and South UMSL and North Hanley MetroLink stations.
