Current Trail Projects:

McKelvey Trail in Creve Coeur Park
Construction has started on the expansion of the McKelvey Trail! This project, funded by Great Rivers Greenway in partnership with St. Louis County and the City of Maryland Heights, will provide 1.9 miles of new trail to connect Creve Coeur Park to the McKelvey Woods Trail at Fee Fee Creek. The first phase of the McKelvey Woods trail, completed in 2013, started at the Maryland Heights Aqua-port site and ended near Fee Fee Creek.
Work started on February 27. Construction is anticipated to be completed in 2018 for opening to the public. The Construction is being managed by the City of Maryland Heights in partnership with St. Louis County.

Trail Spotlight:
Fisherman's Trail
The Fisherman's Trail in Bee Tree Park in South St. Louis County is a 0.8 mile trail made of flat gravel treadway. This is a great trail for hikers and bikers. 
As the name implies, Fisherman's Trail loops around the lake and provides access to the lake. Since most of the trail is out in the open and not shaded, make sure you take plenty of water if you tackle the trail during the hot St. Louis summer. 
A parking lot near the lake serves as the trailhead. Great blue herons are a frequent visitor during the summer months. These large birds stalk the shallows hunting for fish, frogs and anything else they can eat. Suitable for cross country skiing.
