Flint Hills Trail State Park

Council Grove to Bushong

July, 2018 by yoder.kauffman

Rode on an unseasonably cool and overcast July day. Trail is in excellent condition. We rode our street bikes. This section is doable for the casual rider and for families. Take water, there are no services. Beautiful ride through the flint hills. Bushong is the high point in this section.

Flint Hills Trail State Park

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.

Accordion

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.

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.

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.

Flint Hills Trail State Park

Council Grove out and back

August, 2017 by kerund

Did a 25 mile out and back east of Council Grove. Overall good condition with a little loose stone. Quiet ride with beautiful views of the working and natural landscape.

Weston Bluffs Trail

Close and convenient

August, 2017 by nfoster.750cc

While this trail may not be remarkable in any particular way it was fairly well maintained, nice rolling hills, shaded much of the way by the tree canopy, and perfect for a morning run. While it was not outstanding in any particular way it was free of litter, safe, and a great location on my morning commute for a work out. I gave it 3 stars initially but updated it to 4.

Landon Nature Trail

Shady and nice

August, 2017 by cdshepherd63

Loved this trail. We made it from the start to south of Berryton. It's mostly tree shaded and really pretty; very peaceful, especially after you leave city limits. Concrete for a long while -- great for skating; then crushed stone -- some pitted parts here and there but mostly nice and smooth.

Flint Hills Trail State Park

Paul

July, 2017 by pslobodnik_tl

I regularly do 40-50 on this trail. The best part is from Admire to Council Grove, both in terms of scenery and trail conditions. East of Admire has a lot of ballast that will slow you down. If you like solitude and scenery, it's the best trail in KS. If you like amenities, not so much. As for thorns, I use tire liners and have never had a single flat.
