Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This easy stroll explores the remains of the most sophisticated prehistoric Native American civilization north of Mexico. Once a center for trade and politics, Cahokia was even said to have been larger than London at the height of its existence. Even more intriguing is that this huge civilization seems to have vanished into thin air.

Weaving its way around ancient mounds, this loop trail offers visitors an up-close look at the mysterious and ancient city known as Cahokia. Located just minutes from downtown St. Louis, Cahokia Mounds makes a fantastic day trip for hikers and history buffs alike."
