Flint Hills Trail State Park

Enjoy the Flint Hills Trail and some wind...

May, 2022 by 7s5a692x35

One item of note that is not widely advertised especially for out of state riders is that the section of the Flint Hill Trails from the Western Terminus in Herrington to Council Grove {~25 miles} is closed and has been for a while. We arrived to start our Flint Hills adventure to find that section of the Trail in disrepair due to the lack of maintenance as there was 12” to 18” high grass and vegetation to include 5’ tall saplings. There are two more closures experienced on the trail – in Osage City, the trail abruptly ends without any detour signs and recommend just ride on the streets until you are out of the city limits and then rejoin the trail. Finally, the trail is closed headed East from Ottawa about a mile after going under I-35 but there is a marked detour that puts you on gravel roads and gets you back on the trail rapidly but beware of an aggressive dog of a pit bull mix.

We relocated to Council Grove in order to start our journey to the Western Terminus at Osawatomie. Overall, the trail was in great condition and was pleasantly amazed that a majority of the bridges on the trail were recently replaced. Another feature I have never seen before was that that the concrete surfaced bridges were covered in limestone which made for a smooth transition on and off the bridges.

There was tree canopy on some of the trail and a majority was tree lined to aid in blocking the Kansas winds as we experienced a steady 25 MPH gusting to 40 MPH crosswind on both days.

They are adding new restrooms at a majority of the trailheads and they looked to be 90% construction complete.

Finally, beware of branches that are actually snakes (Water Moccasins) and these were experienced between Ottawa and Osawatomie due to all the water features on both sides of the trail.

Riggs park ok

May, 2022 by john.kf0m

The Riggs Park portion is a nice ride smooth sidewalk that is wide enough for opposing riders to pass. The adjacent side streets around the park also have low traffic that is also easy to ride on. The portion on the North Main Street sidewalk is adjacent to a high traffic street with cars entering and exiting businesses and crossing the sidewalk. The north end of the sidewalk ends abruptly on the North end of a bridge and requires going over a curb to get on to the street. I have not ridden the loops that are east of the N main section. From the Intersection of Grand Street and Meridian there is a nice sidewalk that runs from Grand to 55th street on the East side of Meridian that is also very rideable. IMeridian does have a lot of traffic however.

Flint Hills Trail State Park

A ride through America's heartland

March, 2022 by bikeridesandbreweries

Our quest to ride in every state in America landed us in Vassar, Kansas, a one-horse town about 30 miles south of Topeka, at a trailhead for the Flint Hills Nature Trail. Thankfully, we’d read that it was near a grain silo, otherwise, we might have missed the small dirt clearing we used as a parking lot.
The seventh longest rail-trail in America, the Flint Hills Trail stretches 117 miles across eastern Kansas on what used to be the Missouri Pacific Railroad. Today, it is a crushed stone path with occasional pieces of shale and deeply rutted soft dirt. Riding was slow and bumpy the first several miles and we had to keep a tight grip on our handlebars. The trail was straight as an arrow and flat as a pancake, although the rolling Flint Hills surrounded us. We’d read that there were turkeys and bobcats in the area, the latter of which we may have seen earlier in the day when what we thought was a large, healthy fox darted across the highway. Actually, the only wildlife we encountered while biking were very loud flying insects that reminded us of the cicadas that plague the mid-Atlantic every 17 years.
The trail was lined with scrubby cedars and other trees that formed a narrow screen between us and the farmland on either side. These provided some shade on what otherwise would have been a scorching ride in the summer sun. About every mile, we passed through a gateway with a post on either side, that looked, from a distance, like approaching figures. In fact, we only passed one other bike and two pedestrians during our two-hour ride. The trail widened and improved after we passed through a gateway onto a very broad two-lane roadway with well-packed dirt and cinder.
Award-winning beers awaited us at a brewery outside of Topeka.

First fat tire ebike ride

January, 2022 by sierra66061

Asked Ottawa Bike Shop owner which direction to go on either trail. He suggested eastbound so thats where we headed. Only rode 5 miles before heading back to Ottawa. Great trail, a little wet but very pleased how our fat tire ebikes performed in these conditions, just perfect. This part of the trail almost all canopied, very nice. Definitely going to come back, go further.

Arkansas River Bike Path

Do This One

October, 2021 by acewickwire

Started at south end and rode to the north end, then returned. Switched sides of river a couple times. The trail at each end isn’t as nice as the portion of trail at the middle part of the trail at the “Keeper of the Plains” plaza. The plaza area is very nice with a Veterans Memorial park to see in addition to the Keeper. Plenty of walkers and riders on the trail on a nice Saturday afternoon. Recommend this trail.

Prairie Sunset Trail

first gravel trail ride

October, 2021 by john.kf0m

This was our first trail ride and we have ridden two sections with our city commuter type bicycles. Both were nice rides. First section was starting at Hoover Road going west. We found convenient parking at a nearby empty business lot. The trail was an easy smooth ride until we got near maize road where the trail intersects the Air Cap memorial park single track area which was rougher ride and we became completely confused where it comes close to Pawnee Prairie park and lost the trail. We could possibly have taken city streets to continue to Maize road but decided to go back instead. Next time we went out to Goddard KS where there is a very nice city park with convenient parking and rode East. Goddard does a very good job maintaining this section of the trail which was shaded and quiet and more like a ride in the country. We rode 4 miles east and then returned. The gravel was smooth and easy to ride on. However we found out going east on this section is a deceptive gradual down hill slope so the return was more of a struggle going up hill. Hope to return to Goddard again and make it all the way to maize road plus eventually ride west from Goddard on that section. We really enjoyed not having to fight with city traffic on the streets and the related traffic noise. It was a much more relaxing and stress free riding environment.

Small Portion Ridden

October, 2021 by acewickwire

Started the trail at Vasar and rode 11 miles west. The first seven miles were on mostly crushed stone that has been in use for many years. It was nice riding but did have some soft spots from recent rains. The final four miles were on a new trail surface of finely crushed stone, nearly like sand but well compacted making for a very smooth ride. Not exactly like a paved surface but close to it. This portion of trail had many trees along side and is mostly straight with some grade but very little. We enjoyed the ride through the countryside.

Meadowlark Trail

Good Stuff

October, 2021 by acewickwire

Good natural surface with some overgrowth attempting to encroach on the trail. We didn’t ride full length, started at connection with Valkommen trail in Lindsborg. Would be worth riding more, time permitting. Would be nice one trail completed.

Valkommen Trail

Nicely Done

October, 2021 by acewickwire

Nicely done trail with lots of information signs along the trail telling the history of the town and the Swedish folks that settled in the area. Paved and wide trail. South end has a connection to the Meadowlark trail for a more countryside ride. Recommend this trail when in the area. A number of other riders/walkers encountered on the trail, all with a friendly wave and Hi!
