Jim P. Martinez Sunflower Trail

Worth the Effort

October, 2015 by beyerjf

Winds along a river bed from one park to another. Several optional alternatives along the way, do some of them north, then the others south. As has been mentioned, pretty wide "expansion strips" every 50 feet or so on long sections of the trail making for bumpy ride, no worse than most city streets. Easy to pop over to Main St in Hutchinson for every downtown store/restaurant experience in a town this size.

Great ride

July, 2015 by myronlm

Fantastic ride, sure it is a bit worn but the plus side is no Vehicular traffic. several miles long it also winds through Carey park and connects to So. Hutchinsons bike trails.

Trail needs serious maintenance

August, 2014 by senorbiker

The scenery seen from the trail is pleasant enough. However, the asphalt surface has many, many wide cracks across it --- from one end of the trail to the other. These can considerably lessen the enjoyment of riding this trail, particularly if your bike has small wheels. My folding bike has 20" wheels, so the wide cracks were quite noticeable and are the reason for rating this as only two stars.

Great Bend Levee Trail

Not bad

April, 2013 by klong82

Ran this trail in a pretty strong wind, which is not unusual in Kansas. The trail is now completely paved, concrete in some places, asphalt in other. It is hard to access from west of downtown, you have to go completely to the western end, but there are a couple of eastern access points.

Not hugely scenic as, in part, it goes through the industrial section of Great Bend, but any trail is better than fighting traffic. Mostly runs along the Arkansas River, but don't expect a lot of water unless there have been recent rains.

There is also a short trail through the city park that is more scenic, but only runs for a couple of miles in loops around the park.
