“A section of the Meramec River Greenway stretching from Greentree Park to River Front Park.”— St. Louis County Parks
You can also access the river from a gravel bar off of the trail. This area is popular with local fishermen. The trail winds through a bottomland woodland. Keep an eye open for two large Burr Oaks that can be found just east of the AMVETS. The trail then heads along through Kirkwoods Green Tree Park.
Continuing upstream along the river, you'll have a great view of the Meramec. Utilizing an old road, the trail continues through Simpson County Park into River Front Park. While hard to imagine, there was once a series of clubhouses along the entire length of the trail. Floods eventually forced people to move to higher ground. A new one mile trail is being planned to cross Fishpot Creek and continue one mile upstream along the Meramec.
