Manhattan Linear Park Trail

Trail Map

Description Suggest an Edit

The Manhattan Linear Park Trail will eventually circle the city of Manhattan, Kansas, but as of early 2012, the trail was 9 miles long and forms ring about two-thirds of the way around. The trail surface varies from crushed limestone to concrete sidewalks and crosses only a few roads.

Part of the trail skirts the Kansas River atop a levee, winding around the southern edge of the city through a largely rural landscape. Where the trail heads north again toward the city, it links shopping districts with suburbs. Trail amenities includes signage, benches and distance markers.

Parking and Trail Access

There are 10 access points along the trail. Park at Pottawatomie Ave. near Manhattan Ave., off US 24 near the river and off Hayes Drive south of Casement Road.

LT is a great resource! I am out riding on it whenever I can and especially like the off-trail areas -- some of which can be quite nice. I am thankful for the tranquility the LT has provided me over the years!! read more

It's good as a walking trail on the edge of town. Not much scenery and a lot of traffic. read more
