Grant's Trail: Watson Road
Applebee's, Sappington Cemetery

9065 Watson Road, Crestwood, Missouri

This partially-vacant strip mall, formerly home of Sports Authority, is a convenient parking spot for the northern part of the trail. Grants Trail crosses Watson immediately east of the strip mall, and curves directly behind the mall.
The Applebee's restaurant is a great place to grab a meal after your ride.

Side trip: Historic Sappington Cemetery, established in 1811, is located on Watson road 2/10 of a mile west (toward Crestwood Plaza) from where the trail crosses Watson.  If you're interested in old cemeteries, you'll also find Father Dickson Cemetery along the trail.

Trail mile: 6.38
Sappington Cemetery Sappington Cemetery
Parking: There is a large lot with plenty of space. However, this is not an "official" trail parking lot, so, please be courteous of the businesses and park toward the far end of the lot.  If you really want to show your appreciation for the parking lot, drop in for a meal at Applebee's.
Trail Access: The trail crosses Watson directly east of this strip mall.
