Best Places to Walk in St. Louis

Best Places to Walk in St. Louis

Today, April 6th, is National Walking Day! While you may not be able to get out today if you have a busy day planned, here is a list of some of our favorite spots to take a long walk on a nice day here in St. Louis.


NOTE: These are in no particular order, we enjoy every spot and amazing in their own way.

Forest Park: Wheels & Heels Path

This path wraps around the entirety of Forest Park, making for a long 5.8 mile walk. There are so many sights to see along your way, but it is quite a beloved trail so don't be surprised if you notice that it is busy.

Level of Difficulty: Intermediate

Veteran's Memorial Walking Path

This trail features the great outdoors with minimal buildings/park amenities but long stretches of trail and great views.

Level of Difficulty: Easy

Lewis & Clark Trail Loop

If you are looking for a longer, slightly more challenging trail to get the most out your daily walk we highly suggest this trail. With a total of 8.3 miles you can be sure that your exercise ring will be filled for the day.

Level of Difficulty: Intermediate

Quail Ridge Park Loop

This 2.9 mile trail is great for families and pets. With a dog park on location, as well as disc gold amenities, the whole family can get out and get some exercise together.

Level of Difficulty: Easy

Al Foster Trail

Another longer trail at 8.6 miles, Al Foster boasts some incredible views and scenery. This is a great trail to bring along a friend or partner and share in community exercise. Located in Eureka, this is the most remote trail location so prepare for a bit of a drive (but it is so worth it).

Level of Difficulty: Intermediate

Creve Coeur Trail Loop

One of my personal favorites, this trail is an ideal length for a great workout at 5.7 miles. It is a favorite spot for many, and not just walkers, so expect to see a bit of traffic during the day.

Level of Difficulty: Easy


Walking is so beneficial as it not only helps us reach our fitness goals, but it has also been proven to improve your energy levels, mental health, strengthen your bones, muscles, and memory, as well as fighting off major health problems, such as cancer, type 2 diabetes, and high blood pressure.

Make it a habit to get out and exercise more than just your body with a couple walks each week!
