The River des Peres Trail travels just about four miles through River des Peres Park on the western edge of the city limits, and along the River des Peres Drainage Channel. This is an older trail, and has sometimes not been well maintained, though it is described as great for mountain bikes. Road bikers may prefer to ride River des Peres Parkway.

Recent improvements include a pedestrian bridge crossing the River des Peres and a small creek. Additional improvements include a link to the Holly Hills and Christy Greenways. There is much hubbub about the future of the trail and the greenway project even has a Wikipedia entry online. Google and you shall find…
