New trail to have majestic view of Big Muddy

A groundbreaking ceremony for a new biking and walking trail at the Edward “Ted” and Pat Jones-Confluence Point State Park was held on June 3.

Following a brief program and tour of the new trail, volunteers from Edward Jones planted native Missouri prairie grass in the area. 

The trustees of Pat Jones’ estate – retired Edward Jones’ partners – have worked with Missouri State Parks since her passing in 2018 to create a trailhead area and bike path at the confluence point. 

Once the new half-mile trail is constructed, visitors will have a one-mile panoramic view of the park and the Mississippi River.
