The 3.25 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 west 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 NW 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 City of Riverside is responsible for trail maintenance and operation.
Open dawn to dusk, the trail will be closed periodically for maintenance of the levee and private business access to the river. All trail closures will be marked at entrance points.
