Trails to Walk This Weekend

Posted on April 12, 2023 at 11:15 AM by Claire Rodgers

One of the great things about Liberty is the variety of walking trails! If you are wanting to get a good workout in, take a leisurely walk or even just get a change of scenery, Liberty has the trail for you!

Cates Creek Greenway – 2030 Southview Dr., Liberty MO 64068

If you’re in the mood for an easy walk, Cates Creek Greenway is what you’re looking for. This two-mile, linear trail is fully paved. It’s perfectly parallel with 291 highway, so you won’t be too deep into the wilderness. Walk alone or walk with a group – it’s wide enough for everyone!
