Indian Creek Bike/Hike Trail

beautiful trail. busy

September, 2021 by m5nq7y9hmc

Rode this and much of the Leawood south loop. The trail along the creek is pretty but on a Sunday morning was really busy. Lots of walkers, dogs, and other bikers. That said it’s close to the house and has some pretty bridges and creek views

Urban Trail (St. Joseph Trail System)

Urban Trail Hyde Park to Krug Park

September, 2021 by acwgdnybbk

We have electric bikes and enjoy checking out all the nearby trails. The Urban Trail in St Jo was great. It is very different from many others we have done. As in previous reviews this trail has a lot of hills so this gave us the opportunity to use lots of gears and PAS options. We enjoyed looking at all the different scenery along the way as we went through park, residential, older and newer areas and lots of squirrels. The whole trail is paved which was nice. The main trail is about 10 miles but there is a side trail to 29 that will add a few more miles to get a longer ride.

Gary L. Haller Trail

excellent trail

Rode this trail today and I was very satisfied with the smoothness of it and the absence of vehicle traffic.

Rock Island Spur of Katy Trail State Park

Northern Section in Lee's Summit & Raytown

August, 2021 by normanbowers

Trail is now 13.6 miles as has just been opened from downtown Raytown to the sports complex. Surface is smooth and trail surroundings are safe. South of downtown Raytown the surface is mostly rock, and signs say not to ride the rock sections when wet. From Raytown north the trail is concrete but doesn't follow the railroad grade and has some good hills. South of Raytown the trail is shaded, not much shade north of Raytown. Water is only available at Hartman Park in Lee's Summit, which also has modern rest rooms.

Indian Creek Bike/Hike Trail

Great for dogs!

July, 2021 by chanteevans7

We took our 3 dogs on a walk here and it was great! The bikers were super friendly and so were the other pedestrians. My dogs really enjoyed the creek too!

Southern Platte Pass

Southern Platte Pass is the Link

June, 2021 by samenus

Southern Platte Pass is a great trail. It is well maintained. It links me to Parkville and Line Creek Trail. This trail links me to the Greenway.

St. Joseph Riverwalk

Easy Peaceful Trail with River Views

May, 2021 by therootfamily4

This is an easy trail to walk, bike, or blade. Very level. Easy parking at the Remington Nature Center, located at the north end of the trail. As of Spring 2021, the trail is closed at the Casino, but the trail south is pleasant.

Kill Creek Streamway Trail

My go to trail

May, 2021 by ddcook

Beautiful in all seasons. Well maintained trail with conscientious/experienced cyclists, hikers and dog walkers. A hidden gem. I worry that this will change once the word gets out.

SMP Paved Trail

Nature Filled

March, 2021 by lesnord 1023

Smooth, wide trail for walkers and bikers. Weaves through forest and open fields. Some hills. Beautiful fields of flowers in summer and fall. Can be busy at peak times

Riverfront Heritage Trail

Need to pay attention

October, 2020 by tgold6141

The part by the river that starts by the casino was nice but even on a quiet Sunday evening was difficult to navigate with the walkers and scooters. The elevator is still broken so the bike gets carried up 6 flights of stairs. Beautiful views of the river. The path through the city is not clearly designated and mostly up hill. We gave up and turned around but still loved KC.

St. Joseph Riverwalk

Parts are beautiful, others need to be repaired and the areas around it cleaned up. Not worth a special trip to use.
