Despite its name, the Sedgwick County Zoo and Park Path makes several different loops throughout the park, totaling 8.9 miles, and doesn't really incorporate the zoo itself, except for going around its perimeter. The trail system makes for a pleasant, and traffic-free, excursion around small lakes, meadows and ball fields, and part of the trail courses along a scenic creek through a narrow wooded corridor.
Parking and Trail Access
Four parking areas are available in the southwestern section of the trail system: enter North Shore Blvd. off 13th Street or park at the ball fields off both 13th St. and Ridge Road. You can also park at the zoo (entraces on Zoo Blvd. and Windmill Rd.).
