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.

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.

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