Flint Hills Nature Trail

Ottawa to Vassar and back.

April, 2018 by jwise2

Great ride on a super nice spring day. The trails were in very good condition. The only problem that we encountered was the 2 mile (2.5 mile?) detour that is west of Ottawa. It is on gravel roads, which is no problem for gravel riders. There are also a lot of dogs, most are of no consequence... but be on the lookout for an Ill-tempered pit bull on the west end of the detour. The owner was there and able to contain him so we could pass. This is the only reason I couldn’t give our experience 5 stars. Next

Haskell Rail-Trail

Great trail

April, 2018 by orlysud

Love it but wish it was a dirt trail like before and could be extended as it’s short. Just the same, once can always go to the Wetlands from there.

Burroughs Creek Trail and Linear Park

Great if you want to get away from cars

April, 2018 by orlysud

Paved, clean, fairly shady and easy to ride. Only problem is that one has to stop at every block due to traffic going west to East or visa-versa. Also, it’s way too short and wish the City of Lawrence would invest some of their money on extending the trail to go West to Clinton Lake. We need more dedicated trails for bikes in Lawrence without traffic.

Lawrence Levee Trail

LRT

April, 2018 by orlysud

Love this trail. I highly recommend this trail everyone including children as it’s a fairly easy trail. Children should always be escorted by a parent or their parents. I saw a 5 year old girl with her father in the trails once and was amazed how well she rode.

Little Blue Trace Trail

Trace extension

April, 2018 by johnedmeyer56

This trail has been extended 1.7 miles south from end of trail shownon the map. The entire trail is a great ride.

Rock Island Spur of Katy Trail State Park

Rough Going

March, 2018 by cbrynatartist

I rode the Rock Island spur from Chilhowee to Windsor yesterday 3/22. I was pretty disappointed. I know it’s early in the season but there was a lot of debris on the trail and several places that were washed out. It rained two days prior and a lot of the trail between Leeton and Windsor was still waterlogged, felt like riding through wet concrete and the rest of the trail was loose gravel. Hopefully it improves throughout the riding season.

Gary L. Haller Trail

Great weekend activity

March, 2018 by deannepe

This is a nice trail for a longer ride between communities in Johnson County with spurs to destinations like Shawnee Mission Park, Mid-America Sports Complex, and the growing Lenexa City Center. There are a few steeper grades, but overall a good ride with family and friends.

Turkey Creek Streamway Trail

Local trail with access to farmer's market

March, 2018 by deannepe

An easy ride near my neighborhood. I enjoy waking up on a Saturday morning to ride this trail to the Merriam Marketplace for the weekly farmer's market. Local municipalities are exploring opportunities to connect to this trail via other on-street and off-street facilities.

Little Blue Trace Trail

Doesn't drain well

January, 2018 by andrew.herbic

Do not ride this trail shortly after rain, it's like riding through wet sand. It's also pretty bumpy at points. It does have some cool scenery though; I may ride it again when it's dry.

Rock Creek Trail (MO)

Mr

January, 2018 by pwjung6675

Trail is at this point is unsafe. I’ve been told by mayor wier that trail will be paved soon and cleaned up

Haskell Rail-Trail

Trail now paved

November, 2017 by jmessick46

This section is now paved with concrete. Nice smooth ride with a few road crossings.

Lawrence Levee Trail

This trail continues further north.

November, 2017 by jmessick46

The trail continues a little more than a mile further north than shown. It's easy to see if you go to satellite view on the map.
