Directions: Sledding hill (Suicide Hill) off business 60, easy to find. It's kinda off Pearl street. You go down a hill across some tracks and there's a tow truck place --- turn there, you'll cross a bridge and there's the soccer fields. Look towards the soccer fields and there's a huge hill... that's the hill.

Comments: There is a ditch at the bottom of the hill with a four foot drop off. I've hit it several times, but it doesn't really hurt. There is a bridge to walk across. There's really no other hazards.

Directions: The sledding hill is in the back corner of Hyde Park. The park is located at 8th & Hyde Park Ave.

Comments: At the bottom of the sledding hill there is a dip. There is usually enough room to stop after the dip, but if you continue sliding too fast, you could end up in the parking lot (where, of course, there is likely to be parked cars).

Directions: The sledding hill is at Shoal Creek Elementary School just north of hwy 152 & Flintlock. Turn north on Flintlock from hwy 152 (by the Target). The school is on the west side (left) of the road about 1/2 of a mile up the street. Turn into the third entrance near the football/baseball fields.

Comments: The hill is steep and flattens off into the football field. A good hill for little kids & parents. It's just long enough to be really fun for about an hour.

Directions: The sledding hill is at William Jewell College.

Comments: You can park at any of the numerous parking lots and walk up the hill or the easiest thing to do is park at the top of the hill. There are two trees at the bottom of the hill that can easily be steered away from and, by the time you get down there you're usually coming to a stop. The area is shaped like a bowl except for the bottom. The two sides are much more of a shallow grade but the middle is the steepest and best part!

Sledding Hill Known As: " Sullivan Dam Sledding Hill "

Directions: The sledding hill is at the Sullivan City Lake Park. From St. Louis, take I-44 to EXIT 225, turn left and cross the over pass. Take the first right onto the south service road (its right in front of crackle barrel), go aprrox .05 miles turn left on hwy d (towards the hospital). Go approx .05 miles and make a right on SAPPINGTON BRIDGE RD (right in front of the hospital, make the next right hand turn past the hospital (I think its lake drive) you'll be able to see the lake at this point. The hill is on the back side, real easy to find.

Comments: Large hill (back side of the dam.) At the bottom it starts to level off and then goes into a wooded area so you'll want to drag your feet towards the bottom or you'll risk going into the woods. People usually build a ramp towards the bottom, ramp is not for the faint at heart, rarely are you able to stay on the sled after hitting it (but hey, its fun.) I'd probably leave this hill for older kids and adults. The hill is great for dare devils are somebody who likes to get speed.

Directions: Sledding hill at Richards Gebaur Air Force base. If you are on 71hwy, take it to 155th st and head West. This will take you into the Air Force base. When you get to the light, it is to your southwest. I've heard it called Mad Dog Hill before but don't know if that is entirely accurate.

Comments: The sledding hill is long, and in certain spots has great natural ramps that will send you flying.

Hazards/Obstructions: Yes (See Comments) Video: None Photo: None Submitted By: Jeff McConnell, 2-23-2013
Directions: Sledding hills located at Blackburn Elementary School off R.D. Mize Rd in Independence. RD Mize is just east of 291 Highway and 23rd Street. Road can be found by going one block east of 291 on 23rd street and then turning right passed the now vacant MCI hospital or by going east on Gudgell off 291 just past the Quik Trip. School is on the North side of RD Mize.

Comments: Parking lot in the Northeast side of building. The hills are part of a wide bowl in a field beside the school. Sleddible hills on 3 of the 4 sides. Good steep runs but mostly smooth and easy enough for a 5 year old to go down unaccompanied. There is a baseball backstop at one corner but it is easy to avoid and a drainage grate at the base of the hill nearest the school that is pretty easy to see but still should be pointed out to sledders if they've not gone down the hill before. Fastest hill is across the bowl from the school on the south side. Hill backs up to houses but owners don't take issue as long as you stay out of their yards. Property lines are pretty obvious. Usually not very crowed but sometimes you'll see 20 or so sledders of all ages.

Directions: Sledding hill at Glendale Elementary School which is on Lee's Summit Rd. Drive to the back of the school and park. The hill leads down to the field.

Comments: This is a good hill for children that are a little more frightened of sledding on larger hills but still steep enough for older kids to not be bored.

Comments: It is steep, and not too bumpy, and it also has a natural jump that is about 3 feet high. It is probably the least heard-about hill i have ever been to and isn't that crowded on snowy days.

Directions: Sledding hill at Brookside Park. At 56th & Brookside is a popular sled riding hill called Suicide Hill. Pretty much, the park is the sledding hill. Tennis court on top, baseball diamond at the bottom.

Comments: Best sledding hill in the Kansas City area. Ask anyone in Kansas City who grew up there about Suicide Hill and they will know where it is, and will probably have stories about it. Many inferior sleds met their end on that hill. A friend of mine used to gather up the discarded remains and repair them. I once watched a group of 5 girls on a very long tobaggon sled straight into the fire barrel at the bottom of the hill, screaming the whole way. Tobaggons don't steer and their combined weight carried them much farther than single or double sledders would go. Very fast hill, some parts can be bumpy. Different starting spots at the top give varying rides, from smooth and safe to daredevil and fast. It is always in use when a good snow comes. I've seen every kind of sled imaginable on that hill, from innertubes to car hoods. The hill doesn't look like much from the bottom, but from the top, it screams "Sled me!"

Webmaster Note: A lot more Kansas City area sledding hills that were not posted to this site via the normal submittal form, but rather found elsewhere on the web have been posted on the sled riding forum Missouri section here. The same list was also posted under the Kansas section on the forum due to KC being between both states. If you find that any of the sledding hills located on that forum list have not previously been posted under the Missouri or Kansas state pages of this website, then please submit it along with all of the hills details via this for here. Thank you in advance.

Comments: This is currently the best submitted sledding hill in Jefferson County and the local sledding hill of choice for this sites webmaster and his son when they don't want to drive to Art Hill or Blanchette Park.

Webmaster's Review: No hazards (see below 2009 update) and a medium but fairly steep grade with a long run out at the bottom. Overall, I would rate this sledding hill a generous . The 4th star was added in 2009 from 3 stars because the locals build a snow ramp in the center of the hill. This makes the hill so much more fun (airtime!). So, if you get there before anyone else, construct the snow ramp. Everyone will thank you (including me)!

2009 WEBMASTER UPDATE: Yep, that's me in the first photo showing some major airtime on this fun hill! The first sizeable snow of the season brought my son and I back. We didn't feel like driving all of the way to Art Hill in central St. Louis County and we remembered that we had fun on this hill in the past, so it deserved another visit. I must say, we are glad that we did make this choice. When we arrived the hill was empty, but quickly filled up with about 20 sledders during our 2 hour visit (many, to my amazement, finding this hill through this website posting). To the left of the new goal (see below bold), midway up the hill, some sledders from before our visit had constructed a nice snow jump. Let me tell you, that made this hill SO MUCH MORE FUN! We had our big red/black snow tube (see review here) and the airtime made our day. Also, while sledding we had noticed a camerman coming up to the hill to take some photos. His name was Andrew Jensen and he was with the Jefferson County Suburban Journal. He found this hill on this website (what a small world). He definitely got the great snow photos that he was looking for this day (see 2nd pic above)! Since our last visit a few years ago, the school had placed a football goal in the center of the hill, but don't be discouraged, there is plenty of room to the left or right of it to have a lot of fun and sled safely. However, I do want to say that there were kids who were sledding down the hill through the center of the goal. This is a horrible accident waiting to happen. Please don't sled through or near the goal. The school should really consider padding the 2 posts. A few of the photos above reflects this addition.

If you are in Jefferson County or South County and don't want to drive far, then this hill is WELL WORTH a visit on a snowy day. Snow tubes are the most fun for going over the constructed snow ramps, so if you have one, bring it! They sure do cushion the landing. We revisted this sledding hill again 2 days later and took some more photos and video (see above). We also reconstructed a larger snow ramp using the tools seen here about mid-hill. The video above will show the fun results of our snow ramp.


2009 WEBMASTER NOTE: This is one of a few sledding hills that my son and I frequent on snow days, since it is so close to our home. If you see any of our "unique" sleds on Fox hill, then that's probably us. See them all by clicking here. Stop by and say "hi"! Also, we just added sled lights to some of our snow sleds for the 2009/2010 winter season, so if you go night sledding at Fox hill and see sleds or snow tubes with lights on them (very unique), then it may be a sure bet that's us having fun.

Directions: This sledding hill is located behind the football field at Ridgewood Middle School in Arnold, Missouri. 1401 Ridgewood School Rd. This sledding hill is located in the woods on the far right side of the building, where the football field is at. There is a huge parking lot in front of the woods. There is this little bridge you have to walk over and underneath it is a creek. After you do that, immediately, there are two paths. You can take any path but I prefer the right path because it's quicker. As you are done walking the path, you'll see a little hill with a football field on it and if you go on the field, the big hill is on your left. See map picture here.

Comments: Be careful when sled riding this hill because there are a lot of ditches and bumps. I practiced on this field for football and I just thought it would be a fun hill to sled on.

Webmaster's Review: I made a quick visit to this hill to take some pictures after the submittal. Overall I would give this hill . Probably not a great hill for the little ones, but more so for the seasoned sledder. It doesn't look like much looking at it from below, but once you walk to the "upper right corner" of the wooded area and look down, only then does it look much more impressive. The pole in the photo seems to me to be the worst hazard and the fence below the pole out of the picture, since that could be a tempting sled run for some. The bleachers can be manuvered around and are a clear object to not sled towards. The best sled run would be well out of the way of the bleachers once the temporary lighting (see pic) for football season is moved out of the way. Sled here (and all hills) at YOUR OWN RISK!

Directions: Sledding hill at Crystal City Public Park off of Park Drive. Go to where the basketball courts are right behind the pond (if you drive past the public swimming pool, then you will see them). Coming from Herculaneum, take 61/67 south, make a left on 11th St., then make a left on Virginia Ave., then make a left on Park Dr. Take it until in loops around on Parkview Dr. and you'll see the courts on the right.

Comments: There's plenty of parking. Start at the top of the hill by the courts. It's a steep slope and THERE IS A BIG BUMP AT THE BOTTOM. There's an old fountain at the end of this hill which is sometimes filled with a few inches of water/ice. This actually makes this hill perfect, but for those taking young kids please be careful. I'd definitely rate this hill FIVE STARS for ages 13 and up, and FOUR STARS for young kids due to the bump at the bottom.

Webmaster's Review: I made a quick visit to this hill a day before a big snow was scheduled to hit to take some pictures. Based soley on the water hazard at the bottom of the hill, I am personally going to rate this sledding hill . If it weren't for the water/fountain hazard at the bottom, I think this hill would warrant a 3 star rating.

Webmaster's Review: I made a quick visit to this hill to take some pictures after being told about it today. Overall I would give this hill . It a large open space and safe from any hazards. Many locals kept showing up when I was taking photos. This is a nice, safe, little, wide hill for all ages.

Directions: This sledding hill is located at Spross Park in Desoto at the intersection of Amvets Dr. and Concord St.

Comments: This hill is riddled with hazards at the bottom of the hill. There's a basketball net pole and a tree on each side of the bottom of the hill, so sled with extreme caution. I would not attempt any non-steerable sleds on this hill (ie. tubes, saucers).

Webmaster's Review: I made a quick visit to this hill to take some pictures after being told about it. Overall I would give this hill . It is a bit steeper than the Amvets hill down the street, but has many hazards and not as long of a run out as the Amvets hill does. This is not a good sledding hill for little kids. Due to the hazards sled here (and all hills) at YOUR OWN RISK!

Directions: For residents of western St. Charles county, or anyone that's looking for one of the steepest sledding hills in the area, it's hard to beat sledding down the backside of Lake St. Louis (the "little lake") at Lake St. Louis. The dam at Lake St. Louis is located at the intersection of Deloire and Savoy Drives.

Comments: It also bundles two winter activities together. If the lake's frozen solid, and the ice is smooth, you'll find kids and adults alike skating on the lake.

Webmaster's Review: I must say, Art Hill was my preferred sledding hill in the St. Louis area, but this one takes the cake according to my son! We didn't even know it existed, since we aren't from the St. Charles area. Good thing that I started this website, eh! According to my son, this is the best place in the area to go sled riding so far. I would give Blanchette Park and Art Hill about the same rating for the fun factor, but Blanchette Park has "hills", yeah, I said "hills". This location not only has one sledding hill, but 3 of them. One about 30 degrees, one about 35 degrees and one about 40 degrees which all are like sides of a 3-sided bowl. The only hazard that I can see is that if there were multiple sledders going down each sledding hill at the same time, then they could possibly collide at the bottom of the bowl. To some, this could be fun, but to others, well, lets just play it safe and pay attention. Also, some thrill seekers attempt to ride out of the bowl on what could be called a 4th hill, but I WOULDN'T due to the fact that there are many trees in that location and people have been hurt there. I was leaning towards 3 stars, but since my son liked it more than any of the other sledding hills that he's visited, I am going to rate this sled riding hill . Great variety, I will DEFINITELY be back!!

Sledding Hill Known As: " McNair Hill "

Directions: The sledding hill is called McNair Hill and it is located at McNair Park off of Droste Road near Zumbehl Road. It is located next to baseball diamond #5.

Comments: There is a pavilion at the top of the sledding hill for sledders to congregate. There are a couple telephone poles at the bottom of the hill that some people have hit on occasion and may have gotten hurt (You shouldn't hit them if your paying attention). Also, there is a baseball diamond at the bottom of about a third of the sledding hill on the left. Some people have gotten hurt running into the bleachers. So, please BEWARE of the hazards. At the bottom of the whole sledding hill is a little path of asphalt about 6 feet wide (not a street or anything cars could dirve on). If there's any amount of sledable snow, it will be covered and no scratched sleds. There is a public parking lot on top of the hill. For the handicapped people, there's also a parking lot at the bottom of the sledding hill (but out of the way of on-coming sledders).

After crossing the railroad tracks, make an immediate left onto Civic Park Drive. Civic Park is about 2 blocks down, on the right. Park in the area closest to the pool and walk the walking path to the sledding hill.

Webmaster's Review: When I had seen this hill, I didn't go WOW. It was a simple sledding hill with a slight slope and a few trees around it. Therefore, overall, I would rate this sled riding hill .
