Didn’t take the fork going towards blue valley north high school, but trail is pretty and winds along the creek and a golf course. Great ride
I was visiting family and rode this trail today for the first time and thought it was beautiful. It winds alongside the Little Blue River and the scenery is lovely. The trail itself is well maintained and seems safe. The only problem is that it is definitely not for a road bike, which I have. The trail goes from concrete to crushed stone to concrete to gravel. You come across patches of concrete and think, great, then it goes right onto crushed stone and continues that pattern throughout . I started at the Phelps road trailhead which has ample parking and a port-a-potty and rode north/east (which is really the only direction you can go since if you go the other direction, the trail ends in about a quarter of a mile). Most of this portion of the trail is concrete/crushed stone until you get north of Menards. It then turns into fairly coarse gravel and I had to turn around. I was disappointed as I really wanted to continue since it was so pretty. If you have a hybrid or mountain bike, you will love it. Maybe in the future they will make it more road bike friendly!
Five star trail, but 3 star for inlines because it turns to gravel on both ends, pretty quickly. Had a good time though!
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
Rode the trail north to south out and back on 3/9/21. Surface nice and dry. There are some ruts from riders using the trail when it is wet.Fantastic ride!
This path does not have trash cans or resting areas. You have to cross many busy roads. The route is next to DD hwy. Its not scenic. I do like that it is paved. I also like that there is parking at the start of the trail.
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.
Parts are beautiful, others need to be repaired and the areas around it cleaned up. Not worth a special trip to use.
This is a nice place to ride with a lot of different elevation changes. (Technical terms for Lots of Hills)... can get congested with bikes and walkers on nice weekends... Then you have to watch out for dogs as well...
Rode from 119th and Northview to SM park. Path is fairly well maintained but has the usual bumps in the asphalt that are common along creek trails here. There are some hills as the path gets out of the creek bottom in some areas. There is a nice canopy along most of it with several turn outs to local parks. Once inside SM park, you can cruise the roads and paved trails there.
My son and I rode a small portion of the trail, starting from the southern-end and working back north. The paved trail ended and we were on grass. It was wet and muddy in spots. Did not see any gravel. Do not ride this trail when wet.
Paved paths for walking, scooting and biking. Lots of butterflies and insects. Reclaimed prairies. Frequent natural seating/rest areas. Bridges over creeks and even WATERFALLS in Prairie Creek with access if you’re willing to hold onto a tree or two. We only explored about a third of it and we can’t wait to go back!
