Trail of the Week; Katy Trail to Heritage Museum Trail


Harry Jackson, Jr., St Louis Post-Dispatch (MO)


The east end of the Centennial Greenway has become a popular path with the construction of nearby subdivisions heading west to the St. Charles County Heritage Museum in St. Peters or links east across the Missouri River and into Creve Coeur Park and beyond.

Where * Drive to the trailhead at Hemsath Road, a block north of the Page Avenue bridge. The trailhead is about a half block east. Parking lot is another half block east.

How long * 2.2 miles one way, 4.4 miles round-trip.

Surface * Asphalt.

Difficulty * Gentle hills with some shade, but not much, at the east end.

Hiker's journal * Walk for exercise and relaxation, but it's a marvelous bicycle route. You can head west to the Heritage Museum, east across the Missouri River to Creve Coeur Park, or north or south on the Katy Trail. The stretch parallel to Highway 364 is noisy though quieter in the valleys.

Parking * At the Hemsath Road lot or at the west end in the museum lot. Don't park on private lots.

Facilities * A convenience market is a quarter mile south of the Hemsath Road turn.

Pets * On leash.

Wheelchair/stroller accessible * Yes, but at the beginning of the trail you'll cross two high-traffic streets. Obey the signals and signs. The trail is in very good condition, but you'll encounter rises and descents.

More information * parks.sccmo.org or grgstl.org/.
