One of the newest trails in St. Louis is the Mississippi River Greenway extension, which opened in 2012. The north end is at the confluence of the Des Peres and Mississippi rivers, while it terminates close to the Jefferson Barracks Visitors Center. There are talks into extending the trail to nearby Cliff Cave County Park. The trail is 1.6 miles long and is easily accessible for all people. It is perfect for those who enjoy walking, biking and/or jogging.
