New Trail Opens at Jefferson Barracks Park
The trail connects the park to River des Peres.
There's a new trail in the area and it connects Jefferson Barracks Park all the way up to River des Peres.
Local officials held a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the trail Saturday morning at the Freedom River Walk.
The 1.8-mile path is part of the Great Rivers Greenway District's River Ring and goes along the Mississippi River through historic areas in Jefferson Barracks.
The 12-foot-wide path is handicapped-accessible and officials from Great Rivers Greenway predict many veterans will use the asphalt trail.
The trail was paid for through federal funds.
