Missouri Riverfront Trail

Managed by City of Riverside, City of Parkville, Riverside/Quindaro Bend Levee District, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Partially Funded by a Missouri Department of Natural Resources Recreational Trails Program Grant)

The 4.6-mile multi-use hiking and biking path extends from near E.H. Young Park in Riverside across the Quindaro Bend Levee to Burlington Creek just east of English Landing Park.  Primary access to the trail can be found at the West Trailhead located off of 9 Hwy West, second left after N Mattox Road.

County and Riverside officials worked closely with the Quindaro Bend Levee Board to make the trail the first in the Kansas City area to utilize the top of a levee for walking and biking.

The trail is closed periodically for maintenance of the levee and private business access to the river.  All trail closures will be marked at entrance points. The City of Riverside also hosts a trail status page here. Future plans for the trail will connect it to English Landing Park. For more information, call City of Riverside at 816-741-3993 or City of Parkville at 816-741-7676.
