Little Mill Creek Trail offers a pleasant, woodsy route through Lenexa, about 14 miles southwest of Kansas City. The trail begins at Blackfish Parkway (along which you can hop on the Blackfish Parkway Trail
) and heads south, soon reaching a T-juncture; here, you can head west on another trail into Lackman Park, or continue southeast toward Little Mill Creek North Park. After crossing 79th Street, you'll enter Little Mill Creek South Park. Both the north and south parks offer athletic fields and natural areas.
The trail ends at 87th Street Parkway in a residential area. Cross the road to enter Sar-Ko-Par Trails Park, which has a lake, playground, picnic areas, restrooms, athletic fields, and skate park. It also houses the Legler Barn Historical Museum, which documents the history of the region and includes a railroad caboose and restored depot.
Parking lots are available in Little Mill Creek North Park (79th Street and Cottonwood), Little Mill Creek South Park (79th and Mullen ), and Sar-Ko-Par Trails Park (87th Street and Lackman Road).
