The Little Blue Trace Trail follows the course of the Little Blue River for 11 miles through the Little Blue Trace Nature Reserve, stretching from Interstate 70 in the south to Blue Mills Road in the north. The park has picnic tables, shelters and playing fields. Plans are afoot to extend the trail south of I-70 and west to Lee Summit Road.
Parking and Trail Access
Running north to south, parking is as follows: at Ripley Junction shelter (just south of US 24), at Bundschu Road near Bly Road, at the M-78 shelter (just west of Hwy 7 and north of Route 78) and limited parking along Necessary Road north of R.D. Mize Road.

rode this trail on 10/20 for the first time and loved it! i started at the access off Lee's Summit road north of Colbern Rd right after you go over the river - it's on the right. rode from MM15 to MM7 and back. loved the variety of terrain, bridges, etc. ...
Nice long trail and good for using bike to run errands...places you can stop along the way including grocery, etc.
The trail is longer than what shows on the map right now...it extends east to Lee's Summit Road.
Great Evening Ride
