Blue River Parkway Trail

Primary connector piece to a much bigger trail network

February, 2020 by bikenrun1205

KCMO did this trail well, and it is an important foundational piece. As the Blue River Parkway trail expands, this section already connects the Tomahawk and Indian Creek Trails to the west, and will eventually extend downstream toward the Stadiums, which will connect it with the Henry Wiggins Trolley Track Trail on its way, and ultimately the Rock Island Spur of the Katy Trail State Park. To the south, it will further extend along the Blue River into Johnson County, and eventually networks being built there for the Coffee Creek Trail.

Riverfront Heritage Trail

Good Urban Trail

February, 2020 by bikenrun1205

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

Rock Island Spur of Katy Trail State Park

Very nice Trail

February, 2020 by bikenrun1205

They are doing this trail right! The current Northern end, which goes through Lee's Summit, is brand new, and very well done suburban trail. The main segment, which goes from Pleasant Hill to Windsor, is well done, and well maintained. We have seen the State on this checking for downed trees, washouts, etc. after storms.

Cannot wait for it to be fully linked to KC!

Little Blue Trace Trail

Nice Local Trail

February, 2020 by bikenrun1205

Years ago, this was my local trail. It is fairly well designed, and long enough to provide a good long ride for the family. Look forward to when this is extended to the Rock Island Trail!

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.

Rock Island Spur of Katy Trail State Park

Long Straight Flat Crushed Gravel

September, 2019 by joebus76

Pleasant Hill to 1 hour and back. Nice trail with normal overhead canopy debris here and there. Very smooth concrete bridges. Some short washed out sections repaired with larger loose gravel not yet compacted. Very monotonous compared to some other rail trails , but good for conversation. Averaged 13-17mph. The highlight of the day trip was the Wyoming Street Wine Stop after the ride.

Coffee Creek Streamway Trail

Short, but good Trail

September, 2019 by bikenrun1205

Newly completed in 2018, this trail is in great condition, and services continue to be added (such as bathroom facilities at the Heritage Park trailhead). I look forward to the future completion of this trail past Switzer, along Coffee Creek!
