About the Truman Park-St. Stanislaus Connector Trail in the Missouri River Greenway
Great Rivers Greenway worked with the City of Hazelwood to develop a one-mile trail from the fishing lake at Truman Park northward through a mostly shady area. Ultimately this trail will connect the City of Hazelwood to the Missouri River Greenway at St. Stanislaus Conservation Area. The project included a bridge over Aubuchon Creek.

Status
The first phase of the trail, which begins at the north end of Truman Park, is complete. The second phase, funded mostly by the City of Hazelwood, will consist of a link from St. Stanislaus Conservation Area on the Missouri River southward toward Truman Park. Construction is expected to begin soon.

The Wayne Goode Trail on the University of Missouri-St. Louis campus ties the north and south campuses of the university and St. Vincent County Park with one another and the Ted Jones Trail, which leads to Old Town Ferguson.

The Wayne Goode Trail extends 4.3 miles from near the North Hanley metroLink station south to St. Charles Rock Road. The Ted Jones Trail extends 2.2 miles from the University of Missouri-St. Louis campus north to Old Town Ferguson.

The newest section of the trail, opened in September 2012, passes by the Wayne Goode statue on the UMSL campus, near the Millenium Student Center. From there it passes under a newly constructed tunnel and connects on to the Ted Jones Trail and the North Hanley MetroLink stop.

North of Natural Bridge, the trail may be distinguished from other paths by the distinctive terra cotta colored paver featuring the GRG logo and UMSL lettering in a concrete band on each side of the asphalt trail. See the map on UMSL’s website for a good visual of how the trail interfaces with campus buildings.

The south end of this trail connects to the 1.2-mile St. Vincent Park Trail in St. Vincent County Park.

About the North Riverfront Trail on the Confluence Greenway
The Riverfront Trail is an eleven mile trail which follows the Mississippi River starting at Biddle Street and heading north. The trail terminates at the Old Chain of Rocks Bridge, part of the legendary Route 66. The trail passes through the Mary Meachum Freedom Crossing, North Riverfront Park and over Maline Creek.

Over a three day period in July of 2013, Great Rivers Greenway conducted its annual trail count at the Biddle Street Trailhead. Based on the National Bicycle and Pedestrian Documentation standard for estimating annual trail volumes, the data collected indicates a total of 101,062 trips on the North Riverfront Trail in 2013.

History
From 2005-2006, GRG has assisted in the funding of the rehabilitation of the trail in partnership with the City of St. Louis. In 2007 a major sign and amenities package was installed as well as a new parking lot at Biddle Street to facilitate users of the trail.

Status
Trail repair needed at Maline Creek. Be prepared for an on-street detour around the trail near Maline Creek.
