Weston Bluffs Trail

Close and convenient

August, 2017 by nfoster.750cc

While this trail may not be remarkable in any particular way it was fairly well maintained, nice rolling hills, shaded much of the way by the tree canopy, and perfect for a morning run. While it was not outstanding in any particular way it was free of litter, safe, and a great location on my morning commute for a work out. I gave it 3 stars initially but updated it to 4.

Prairie Creek Greenway

Partially shaded low traffic paved path

August, 2017 by nfoster.750cc

The fairly remote paved running path consisted of small rolling hills and low traffic. At 5:45 on a weekday we passed only four people on our out and back from the south parking lot. We ran about 3.25 miles of the path and it was well maintained and quiet. the south trailhead had a port-o-potty and convenient parking right off of N highway south of Platte City. There were some decent hills in the mix of you are looking to do hill repeats.

Pickett trail

July, 2017 by tball1285

I rode the part of the trail from Pickett Road to the Noyes parkway by the rec center and back. The ride was very enjoyable and staff at Rec center was very friendly allowed me to get some water and fill my bottles. great section for new riders.

Route 152 Trail

Wide, hilly and smooth. Awesome concrete trail.

May, 2017 by mybulkmail

I was in town on business and sought out a nice running path/trail. This one is perfect. I parked at the Lifeway Christian book store and started my run from the trailhead just behind the store. This site lists it as 3 miles, but it is longer than that now since they've added quite a bit of trail to the east past where the map shows it ends. Expect some decent hills and a couple of major roads to cross, but this white concrete trail is as smooth as can be for biking, running, rollerblading, etc. I'll be back every time I'm in town.

Riverfront Heritage Trail

Nice trail but did I miss some directions

November, 2016 by jwneulinger

We got on the trail at the Riverfront Park and headed west. It's a great trail. We had not gone very far when the trail ended at a tall set of stairs that we would have had to climb with our bikes. No way.There is an elevator but no way to operate it. Is there no other way to continue west?

Line Creek Trail

Best Family trail yet

August, 2016 by bobbisalestuff

Kids And I went on this today, we loved the little water falls. This is a shady trail and has a lot of places to stop and play in the water.

Line Creek Trail

Beautiful

February, 2016 by lwiese17

Beautiful, easy biking trail that's in town but at times you felt like you were out in the middle of nowhere. Low traffic when we rode. Some runners, walkers and other bikers. I'm sure it's busier on nicer days!

Riverfront Heritage Trail

Peace and Quiet!

July, 2015 by csmit292

Nicely maintained trail minutes from downtown Kansas City. Peaceful and quiet, with only moderate activity from other users.

Line Creek Trail

Line Creek Trail

Scenic And Smooth

May, 2015 by blairmcian

A beautiful trail that is completely separated, virtually its entire length, from motorized traffic, so much so that cars cannot even be heard on much of the trail even though it goes through a well-developed area. It is a wide, smooth, concrete trail. The only improvement that I might suggest would be improved drainage of water from the west as it goes east to Line Creek, as there are places in the trail where recent rain means surface water slowly draining across the trail, creating a bit of a mess for those who ride fender-less bikes. Where the trail crosses Vivion Road you can detour a couple blocks east and jump onto the Linear Trail that cuts through another wooded area on old interurban railway right-of-way and hugs the Missouri River bluffs as they curve to the south and east.

Line Creek Trail

Best Ride in the KC Area

April, 2015 by jedwards6192

Now that the Line Creek Trail is connected from the Argosy Casino to Tiffany Springs Market Center it is unrivaled. There are 5 street crossings in the approximate 11 mile concrete trail. 4 of the crossings are controlled with crossing lights. This eliminates exposure to cars and makes for a very safe ride. From the Line Creek Ice Rink to the Riverside under pass is a nice flat ride. Great for beginners and families. There are places to eat at both ends of the trail as well as a small store just off the trail north of the Line Creek center. NO bike rental is available near the trail.

Hyde to 29 hwy

October, 2014 by lmoranz

My friend and I biked from Hyde to Pickett and then took Picket back and ended back up on trail. The first part is very challenging. Lots of hills. Last part was very enjoyable. Nice trail but not well marked in places. We wanted to go to Krug but didn't see trail to go that way. Homeless man on bicycle yelled vulgar things at us and awful gestures which scared us to death on the first part of our ride.
It was ok. Not my favorite.
