Metro East Levee Trail

This is a relatively simple, shorter trail that connects runs through the semi-small town of Cahokia. This town along the river has a few historic buildings, which are worth a brief stop. Although riverside towns are beautiful for the most part, it is difficult not to get wrapped up in the natural phenomenon. The river seems eternal and overwhelmingly powerful next to these historic settlements.

Anyway, if you’re into a fairly simple, painless, scenic weekend hike, Metro-East is a nice walk through the woods.
