Redbud Trail

A lot longer than listed.

August, 2017 by underrated

I am not sure where this path starts to the west. I took an unmarked bike path from 135 to the RedBud trail a few miles away. It is paved and out of the way - which makes it nice for riding. But at one point the paved trail stops and a gravel portion starts. The gravel portion is blocked off making it look like it is closed. The gravel portion was ok. The gravel can be a bit loose and thick. I was riding 700x41 Knards and would not like to be on smaller tires. I wanted to really love this path BUT the constant road crossings was horrible. One intersection took me probably close to 5 minutes to cross - HORRIBLE. The street crossing are abundant and really made me dislike this trail (out east). The trails were also roped off so you had to stop and lift your bike over them - at least I had to. Parts of the trail were very nice but I gave up due to the street crossings. It was nice that this path crossed the K96 path which allowed me to connect trails and get in a 30 mile ride. Like the previous review, I hope they leave it gravel instead of concrete. Crushed limestone would be best and cheaper... Wichita is trying to provide a better bikeway (Bike, Hike, Walk) and this is a good start on the west end.

McAdams Bike Path

nice for a few miles

August, 2017 by underrated

This is a connector path which makes it nice to get in longer rides. To the east is the K96 bike path. On the other end is the Canal hike and bike path which travels under 135. The ride will take you into an area marked with gang graffiti. I would not ride this path in the evening alone. I think early morning would be the safest but your experiences may vary. I liked the beginning of the trail off Oliver to 27th. The trail was clean and well kept.

K-96 Bicycle Path

Better for running

August, 2017 by underrated

I really wanted to love this path but the street crossing, sidewalks and poor signage made it just ok. I thought I was lost when the path just ended without any signs - but that it the was it was designed. I like parts of the path but it was just not long enough and had too many street crossings to be good for distance cycling. You can meet up with other paths and get in 30-40 miles+ BUT that is a lot of street crossings. I think it is a much more suited for joggers and people only wanting to ride a few miles.

Redbud Trail

Favorite bike path in Wichita

July, 2017 by joe59

Great trail, it is now paved all the way to Woodlawn. East of Woodlawn it is gravel all the way to Andover. Its a great gravel-bike ride, I hope they keep it gravel and do not pave it all.

Sedgwick County Zoo/Park Path

Sedgwick County Park

June, 2017 by debbya34

Love it! Clean, sitting areas, well keep, awesome trail!

Arkansas River Bike Path

nice with few stops

June, 2017 by reverendstark

You can go along way on this path. You can start pretty far south(I have started at the dog park at hydraulic and i135) and go all the way to Sedgwick county park. This might be several paths but most of it is Arkansas river path. Lots of path. Few stops.

K-96 Bicycle Path

traffic

June, 2017 by reverendstark

Lots of stops on busy intersections. Many automobiles entering crosswalks.

Arkansas River Bike Path

Some parts flooded

May, 2017 by robindeawaugh

Enjoyed the well maintained trail from Fairfield Inn to the Keeper of the Plains statue. After that the trail deteriorated - several dead birds on the trail and approximately 1 mile from the statue the trail was flooded!

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!

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.
