Tomahawk Creek Trail

nice ride

May, 2021 by m5nq7y9hmc

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

Little Blue Trace Trail

Beautiful, but not for road bikes

May, 2021 by mundobonito1

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!

Little Blue Trace Trail

short but sweet

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

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.

Legacy Park Trail

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...

Gary L. Haller Trail

Nice ride to Shawnee Mission park

September, 2020 by cam08529

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.

Little Blue Trace Trail

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.

Burroughs Creek Trail and Linear Park

Great trail, longer than advertised

August, 2020 by mshawdds

Very nice trail, populated with walkers and bikers on a pleasant Sunday afternoon. Almost completely shady and very smooth concrete. The description shows the trail going from 11th street to 23rd, but it actually extends an additional mile south to 28th Street. Eventually it will connect with other trails on both its north and south terminals to become part of the Lawrence Loop. As of today, there is well placed signage indicating a two block zig zag at the south end where it reconnects with the South Lawrence Trafficway trail.
