North Riverfront:
We are kicking off a study to evaluate the potential for development along the North Riverfront Trail in an area that extends roughly from Laclede’s Landing to The Trestle. A team lead by Forum Design will research and recommend opportunities for transforming this industrial area into a destination for recreation and other development. Stay tuned for open houses and opportunities to share your ideas in 2015! For more information, click here.

    Trail Updates

    Our trails are managed by the municipalities in which they are built. Please report any trail issues to us and we can help to coordinate the appropriate solution and advise trail users on the site or via signage as well.

    Water and flooding conditions can change rapidly along our region's rivers and streams. Trail conditions can change suddenly. With high river levels, many of our greenways may be partially or completely underwater. Avoid water at all times for your safety. Report greenway conditions by emailing info@grgstl.org.

    Watch for debris on trails after heavy rainstorms!
    Heavy rainstorms can wash debris and rocks onto trails. Keep your eyes on the trail to avoid any potential hazards. Report hazardous conditions such as large rocks, logs, gravel etc. by emailing info@grgstl.org.
