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.

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.

Meadowlark Trail

Quality Trail that needs completion

September, 2016 by mheidric

On September 15, 2016 I rode both parts of the trail from Lindsborg south and from McPherson north on a Cyclocross bike and found the trial in great shape especially on the Lindsborg side. The ride from the Lindsborg trail head is a beautiful one with lots of shade and from McPherson a wonderful ride through mostly farm land with lots of sunflowers along the trail. There is some crop waste on much of the trial on the McPherson side but nothing that caused any problems to ride or walk through. While it is a shame there is a 5 mile piece missing in the middle of the trail it is a short jog from the trail ends to old US 81 highway so a nice 12.5 mile ride one way is still available.

K-96 Bicycle Path

K-96 Bike Path is a great trail!

September, 2016 by jpwesley

I rode the entire trail this evening from Central Ave to N Oliver Ave and back. This trial is really great! Not too much elevation change since Kansas is flat, but there were a few spots that had some incline that made the legs burn a bit. The asphalt and concrete trail surface is in good shape. The only "bad" spot was a mile or so stretch just west of Cabelas outdoor store. The asphalt surface was a little uneven in a few spots but not bad at all. The places where you cross busy intersections have crosswalks and lights so that wasn't an issue. I rode in the evening after business hours so the parking lot entrances you cross on Cypress Dr and E 32nd weren't an issue. I'm guessing they might be earlier in the day. All in all a great trail!

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.

Arkansas River Bike Path

Trail Surface Needs Maintenance

April, 2016 by adsaxs

Since we were staying at the KS State Fairgrounds RV Park, we cycled to the start of the trail at Rice Park off of 23rd Avenue. We cycled to and around Carey park. We took the surface roads back to the fairgrounds.

While the trail is a very nice ride along the river and through some of Hutchinson’s city parks, the trail surface needs maintenance. In some sections there were large cracks in the pavement. Other sections had tree roots uprooting the path. It was a kthunk-kthunk-kthunk ride on our hybrids. Luckily, these large cracks were marked with paint and were visible but the ride could have been more comfortable. There weren’t any benches to sit along the path until we reached a park like Rice or Carey.

Overall, we enjoyed the ride. Carey Park was quite an impressive park and a nice place to stop and have lunch. So, if you are visiting the city, as we were, I would recommend a ride along this trail.

Prairie Sunset Trail

great trail

Great trail. Parked in Goddard, easy access with park and restrooms nearby. Thanks to whoever is responsible - it's appreciated!!

Prairie Sunset Trail

Awesome Trail

March, 2016 by rstacey5558

I've ridden the Prairie Sunset Trail several times starting from Maize Rd on the east end and as far as Garden Plaine in the west. Parking a little scares in Wichita at the east end but plenty at the city park in Goddard. If there were a bridge over the Cowskin Creek then users could park at the Air Capital Memorial Park.

Wildfile is plentiful with deer, fox, snake and various bird sightings.

Hike/Bike to a Burger Stand Drive In

February, 2016 by kadenandkenyonsmom

We parked in the Linear Park of Downtown Goddard, KS & rode East to Garden Plain - We stopped at Frosty Treat Drive In Diner for great classic Burgers & Shakes!
203 W Harry Street
Then rode back with happy bellies!
We liked the covered bridge & lots of wildlife - Deer, Turkeys, Lizards...
Easy path. Take plenty of drinking water for a warm day. Wear sunscreen & hat - it was a railroad track once upon a time, so not much shade.
