This section of Grant's Trail crosses I-44 on an old railroad bridge.
There are still several "live" railroad lines just beyond the end of the trail.
Downtown Kirkwood: If you want to continue past the end of the trail into downtown Kirkwood,
after the end of the trail proceed north on
Holmes for 0.6 mile to Argonne. Go left (west) on Argonne 0.8 mile to Kirkwood Road.
You are now in the heart of downtown Kirkwood.
This is at the western end of Grant's Trail.
See the top of this page for directions from trail's end to downtown Kirkwood.
From the highway:
Take the Big Bend exit (exit 278) from I-44, and head east one block on Big Bend.
Take the first left, onto Holmes (just before QT). Holmes curves hard to the
right; the bridge crossing I-44 is just past this curve.
You will see a small lot on this side (south side) of I-44.
To get to the larger lot, turn left at the stop sign to cross the highway - you'll see the
parking lot and restroom building on the left just after you cross over the highway.
