Biking/Pedestrian Trail at River's Edge

Gateway Outdoor Road Cyclists (GORC) was approached in the summer of 2023 by the City of Chesterfield about the possibility of natural surface mountain biking trails in River’s Edge Park. This 188 acre park is located in Chesterfield valley in between the levees along the Missouri River. It contains a large lake and walking trails that circle the lake. After a site review, GORC submitted a proposal to the City in September of 2023. It was approved by the City Council in December of 2023 with construction to begin in the spring of 2024. This will be a multi-year project.

It will consist of a single outer loop approximately 2.5 miles in length. There will be the option for a shorter 1.25 mile loop on the western side of the property. Phase 1 will begin with the construction of the west side trail. It will consist of some bench cut trail, but will mostly be flat with rolling construction. This trail will be enjoyed by the beginner cyclists and make use of ground unsuitable for other activities.
