In addition to surface roads, Ulysses S. Grant NHS is served by Grant's Trail, an 8-mile long hiking and biking path that was converted from a railroad track established during President Grant's ownership of the White Haven property.
Today the trail is owned by St. Louis County Parks and administered by TrailNet. More information about Grant's Trail, including maps, parking, and mileage, can be found at the trail website.
