Prairie Spirit Trail State Park

Ottawa to Garnett and back

April, 2017 by clengquist

Had a great ride yesterday on the trail. Met nice folks along the way. Trail is well maintained. If the state could do something about the 23 mph SSW headwind, that would be nice. :)

Plenty of place to stop and enjoy the prairie.

Landon Nature Trail

Nice Trail

January, 2017 by whitedoyle

I got on the trail where it intersects 89th street. There is not a really good place to park. I ran toward Topeka and crossed several roads that had better spots to park.

The website for the Rails to Trails says the part that head south was closed to public, but it looks like it is now open.

Flint Hills Nature Trail

Not bad

January, 2017 by whitedoyle

I ran a short out and back--getting on the trail near 7th and Lincoln in Ottawa. It was a bit muddy in a few places, but otherwise not too bad. They had just replaced one of the bridges and looked like they were going to add side rails. I crossed two other bridges with no sides. The portion I was on looked like it might have some shade in the summer.

Prairie Spirit Trail State Park

Great rail trail

October, 2016 by cadtrends

After riding the Katy three times a buddy and I found out about this trail. I like it better even though it is much shorter. Rode it the first weekend of October. It was in GREAT shape. Whoever is in charge of maintaining it does a excellent job. Started in Humboldt and rode to Ottowa on a Saturday and rode back on Sunday. About 57 miles each way. Garnett is really the only place to get food halfway. Perfect weather when we went. I think there is a trail to Witchita from Ottowa. Will be looking for info on that and incorporate that with the next Prairie Spiirit ride

Flint Hills Nature Trail

Bikepacking east from Admire to Pomona Lake & back

October, 2016 by a.q.jones

My wife and I did a S24O (sub-24-hour-overnighter) from Admire to Pomona Lake and back (~30 miles one-way - 60 miles round-trip) over Columbus Day weekend 2016. We stayed at Vassar State Park which has a nice shower house with running water, plumbing, electricity, and a laundromat. It is also right on the lake. Osage City is a nice midpoint stop over with a nearby Casey's and Sonic just a block or two off of the trail.

I would recommend diverting to the south of the trail a block or two in Osage City due to the active railroad, an unmaintained bridge, and an apparent private property dispute/temper-tantrum. The active railroad is the only signed feature, and that's with a do-not-pass barricade and sign. The railroad that crosses the trail is NOT at-grade, and will require an exceptionally expertly-timed bunny hop in loose ballast or a dismount and lift.

I rode a Surly Big Dummy with 26"x2.15+" width tires and my wife rode a Salsa Vaya with 700x40mm tires. We both had flats, although mine may have been due to an improperly tightened valve stem. Hers may have been a pinch flat, as there was no evident thorn or debris nearby or caught in the tire.

This segment of the trail (Admire to Pomona Lake) looks to have had limestone screenings laid down at some point in the past, but does not experience enough travel to keep the grass down. The trail is bumpy and muddy with loose ballast, pot holes, and washouts in sections. There are a few low-hanging branches to dodge, also.

All this being said, my wife and I rode the trail with one longtail bike plus rider plus camping equipment probably verging on 280-300 lbs mark, while my wife was on somewhat narrow 40mm wide tires with her camping gear, and we only had to dismount once due to a broad and deep mud hole.

If you're used to riding perfectly groomed limestone trails, or asphalt and concrete and don't know how to change a flat and aren't used to riding 10-15 miles on gravel and/or minimum maintenance roads, and can't carry more than a couple of water bottles, this portion may not be for you.

If you regularly mountain bike or ride gravel, and know how to change a tube, and are prepared to NOT have water spigots every 2-5 miles, this is a fun segment, particularly for a quick bikepacking overnighter. . .

Pomona Lake's Vassar State Park is close to the trail and has a laundromat and showerhouse with plumbing and electricity and a motel and restaurant nearby.

Osage City is right on the trail with a Casey's and Sonic in plain view at one intersection.

Run tubeless or with tire liners. Have a hand tire pump handy.

Pack extra water. . .Osage City (~15 miles) is the first place with clean water access between Admire and Pomona Lake that would appear to be readily and regularly handy unless you want to knock on doors.

Indian Creek Bike/Hike Trail

Beautiful day for a walk

Flint Hills Nature Trail

Fantastic biking trail!

July, 2016 by fdowell

Spent several days doing different portions of this trail while camping at Council Grove in June. Rode East of Council Grove to Bushong and back (30 miles round trip) one day. Then another day started at Osage City and rode west to Allen and then back to Osage City (40 miles round trip), and then east past Lake Pomona and back to Osage City (30 miles round trip). Lots of biking hours in solitude and fantastic scenery of the Flint Hills. Lots of tree canopy covering the trail in some places. It is pretty flat so biking is pretty easy. The biggest issue is that you need to be self supported since there are almost no services for many miles. You certainly shouldn't try this without very good puncture resistant tires. I use Stan's Notubes and Specialized Armadillo tires and sure encountered some thorns but this was no problem with self-sealing tires. I covered over 100 miles with no delays due to flats. Lots of wildlife, and saw no other bikers on the trail on any day. Some parts are a bit rough, so a Hybrid or mountain bike (my preference) is best. Sure don't try it on a road bike. If you want a smoother trail with lots of services, then the Katy Trail in Missouri is a nice option.

Indian Creek Bike/Hike Trail

Long Board Adventure

April, 2016 by longliverepublic

Went longboarding on the Indian Creek Trail with my Son last Wednesday. He had already been on the trail so we had no problems getting from the Parking lot near Olathe East High School to Chipoltle on College in Overland Park, KS.

It had rained the night before so there was some debris on the path that rising water had left. There was also some mud under a couple overpasses and broken branches in various places.

We walked the blind curves to avoid running into bike riders. Bikes can sneak up on you as they don't make any noise.

We'll explore the South Western part of the Trail next to see what it looks like.



Flint Hills Nature Trail

East from Council Grove

October, 2015 by zekezoe

We did 25 mile round trip with cyclocross bikes. Loved it! The first couple of miles weren't that interesting, but after that the prairie and woods were beautiful. We would much prefer this kind of trail than going through farmland.

Indian Creek Bike/Hike Trail

Great Commuter Trail for Johnson County

October, 2015 by phillip.cockrell

My wife and I ride this trail several times a week. It is fairly well maintained asphalt with wooden bridges. During cooler temperatures, the bridges will ice over before the trail does, so be careful on cold mornings. Best time to use this trail is early morning, as it's mostly commuters and the occasional walker/jogger. Everyone is typically pleasant and will return your greeting. Later in the day, the trail is jammed with families, pets, and strollers, which is nice but they don't understand trail etiquette and can be difficult to safely pass.

My only negative comment about the trail is the mud. There are sections of the trail, especially around overpasses, where during heavy rains mud covers the trail. My wife went down pretty hard on one of these sections. Some sections will also have standing water, days after a rain. If they could concentrate on those sections and work out the drainage, this trail would be perfect! It certainly beats taking your chances with cars on the surface streets for commuters like me.
