Tomahawk Creek Greenway

detours

June, 2024 by khughes2000

Detours from 69 construction make this confusing to get to where you want to go. Hopefully when the construction is done it will be easier. Need some better Detour signs. Nice ride thru the trees.

Coffee Creek Streamway Trail

Great trail for inline speed skating or just regular inline skating. It wasn't crowded, and the people that I passed responded well to my bike bell (also, slow down and be polite as you pass ¿)

connecting

Gravel rode this to connect to rock island trail. Nice option to stay off the roads when traveling from Arrowhead stadium to Windsor.

Rock Island Trail State Park

arrowhead to Windsor

June, 2024 by hn72qs9by5

Used this trail to connect from arrowhead stadium to Windsor Katy trailhead. Needed to ride roads from Lee summit to pleasant hill. Trail after pleasant hill has almost no service. But great trail and highly recommend!

Prairie Spirit Trail State Park

Ottawa to Princeton - lots of shade

May, 2024 by m47b5rcbqz

Lodging note. There is a new Holiday Inn Express on the Prairie Spirit Trail in Ottawa (just off I-35). They even have a short sidewalk connecting the 30’ between their parking lot and the actual trail. After getting on the main trail south of I-35, the trail is 90% canopied by the trees. In sections it’s just a green tunnel- great for hot sunny days. And rabbits. Lots and lots of rabbits. :o). Even saw a Bobcat run across the trail. out in front of us.

Little Blue Trace Trail

Excellent trail, most parking lots highly unsafe

May, 2024 by 9v76nkgry6

I love this trail and have frequented all parts of it for many years now. I’m so disappointed and frustrated that there are so many cases of break ins to the vehicles of those out on the trail. Just today I went to park at the Bly Rd. entrance and a sheriff was there because someone had broken into two vehicles while the owners were on the trail. At this point, the ONLY locations to park at IMO are the one by ColdStone Creamery and at Natural Grocers. By extension this is very limiting to which parts of the trail I will be walking on. So sad and frustrated at the escalation of this crime. User be very aware.

Little Mill Creek Trail

A Stream Runs Through It

April, 2024 by kafoley91

I can’t imagine a more beautiful ride! It had rained early in the day so the stream was flowing beautifully. Most of the trail runs right along the water so you can enjoy it throughout. There were a few parts of the trail that were a little bit rough and it was more walkers than bikers, but I absolutely loved it!

Prairie Spirit Trail State Park

Easy, fun ride

April, 2024 by aeboe

Ottawa Trailhead to Richmond. About 27 miles round trip & 272 ft. climb. Quick, easy ride. Well maintained trail with good surface for our hybrid bikes. It was a destination trail for us and glad we made to effort to experience it.

Gary L. Haller Trail

Previously a top tier trail. Unfortunately has been overrun with either inattentive pedestrians/dog walkers or Tour de France "wannabes".

Riverfront Heritage Trail

awesomely terrible

November, 2023 by ydm7k9qxyt

If you start where the north east end of the trail is at ballys casino you will find A wide concrete trail with signage and benches. However, 1/10 of a mile end of the trail it’s all blocked off for construction of a stadium and a motel no way around. Back to the vehicle load up the bike and go to the next place you can get on. Ride for 1/4 mile stop for six flights of stairs. Fortunately, there is an elevator for bikers. However, at the top of the elevator, you’re right across a wooden bridge and it dumps you into a commercial industrial area With no signage or sign of a trail. This trail could be awesome but as it is, it sucks. that is totally lacking in a trail and any signage. I rode around for a half an hour in the industrial area, trying to find any sign of the trail. Finally, I gave up and turned around and wrote back. This trailer could be awesome
