Best Running Trail

Grant's Trail

Staff Pick

Stretching for eight miles through south St. Louis County, Grant's Trail offers the perfect route for runners of all abilities. The paved path is easy on the feet, and without the hustle of traffic, it is easy to fall into a deep trance on the relatively flat terrain. It is a quiet path, winding through scattered woods and open fields, though plenty of welcome distractions exist along the way. In fact, five and a half miles from the trail's western starting point, the path crosses through Grantwood Village, and runners can sneak a peek at the Anheuser-Busch Clydesdales as they make their way past Grant's Farm. The trail is exquisitely clean and well maintained, and large maps and mile markers are posted at regular intervals.
