Gary L. Haller Trail

Great trail for a casual ride

May, 2020 by kasey.skala

Trail is nicely maintained with little-to-no foot traffic. Nice option for a 17-miler.

Indian Creek Bike/Hike Trail

not safe on inline skates

May, 2020 by maplelogo

We started at frontier Park and headed north east. The entire pavement was covered with tar strips and under every bridge was muddy. We are experienced in line marathon skaters and have no problem going over a few rough patches but this was definitely not safe to skates. If someone knows if the trail Is better in other areas please let me know

Line Creek Trail

A great woodland trail for walking & biking. You can follow beautiful Line Creek Trail through the woods on a well maintained trail and it’s only 15 minutes from downtown.

Indian Creek Bike/Hike Trail

KC’s Best Trail

April, 2020 by bradtyler24

I love this trail. I walk it often in multiple locations. I’ll drive to a different section just to try a new route. So many nice views and the trail is in pretty good shape. I bike it occasionally as well. Highly recommend.

Riverfront Heritage Trail

Good Urban Trail

February, 2020 by bikenrun1205

Nice Trail, not always the best marked. Lightly used.

Harry Wiggins Trolley Track Trail

Nice Urban Trail

February, 2020 by bikenrun1205

I have ridden this trail multiple times. The Northern end is quite busy, and there are several crossings throughout, so definitely a recreational trail. The further south you take the trail, the more quiet and remote the trail becomes. Trail crosses a few parking lots in Brookside and Waldo.

I have ridden this all the way to the end at 85th and Prospect, and then continued on to the Blue River Parkway. Will love it when this connects to the Blue River trails someday. The last mile of the trail is rough, overgrown and neglected.

Lawrence Levee Trail

Wide open Trail. Great for families!

February, 2020 by bikenrun1205

I have taken the whole family here multiple times. Very few road crossings, and wide open rides. Easy parking near the mountain bike trails. This is basically a levee ride, so flat, and smooth gravel riding.

Shunga Trail

Paved trail in the middle of Topeka

February, 2020 by bikenrun1205

I ride this trail often, and find it to be a great location, and enjoyable to ride for a casual ride. Can get congested with walkers and the riders.

Landon Nature Trail

Good rail trail, even better potential

February, 2020 by bikenrun1205

I ride portions of this trail often.

This trail has a wide variety in its current iteration. Chipped gravel, concrete, asphalt, dirt, and making its way south with original scree. Several parts, especially as you progress south are low travelled, and once you get closer to 89th, it becomes more overgrown and rugged. Would love to see this developed fully all the way down to the junction at the Flint Hills Nature Trail.

Deer Creek Trail

Great Trail

February, 2020 by bikenrun1205

Simple, easy trail. Not terribly wide, but smooth.

Turkey Creek Streamway Trail

Nice Short Trail

February, 2020 by bikenrun1205

Well Maintained. Good access to neighboring communities. Nestled among both residential and industrial areas.
