The River Des Peres Greenway is a developing 11-mile recreation and transportation corridor that will eventually stretch from Forest Park to the Mississippi River.  The greenway trail now extends from Lansdowne Avenue to Interstate 55 along the River des Peres, with a one-mile neighborhood connector—the Christy Greenway stretching from Germania Avenue to Holly Hills Boulevard.  The greenway also connects to the on-street Bike St. Louis system at Holly Hills Boulevard and the Lansdowne MetroLink station.  Soon this trail will connect into a new trail running from the River City Casino along the Mississippi River to the multi-use trail system in Jefferson Barracks Park. This is an easy paved off road trail suitable for all types of bikes and for hikers of any ability level.  There are no major hills along the route.  This trail is ideal for families and those with low fitness levels.   It follows the River Des Peres drainage through a nice greenway for a distance of about 6 miles.  There are several street crossings with signals.
