133rd Street Path

roadside trail. odd layout

September, 2021 by m5nq7y9hmc

This is a good bike ride for us but as you can see on the trial map it’s in 4 parts and that necessitates street riding between the 4 parts. We’ve only used the 3 east most parts but will ride the other part before winter. I’d recommend but maybe not with kids as the places between paths are on busy streets

Tomahawk Creek Trail

pretty trail and busy on weekends

September, 2021 by m5nq7y9hmc

Have taken this trail both on foot and via bike. Great trail with views of the creek but is really busy on weekends. Rode most recently on a Sunday morning and needed to slow down a lot to pass walkers. Would recommend especially during the week

Indian Creek Bike/Hike Trail

beautiful trail. busy

September, 2021 by m5nq7y9hmc

Rode this and much of the Leawood south loop. The trail along the creek is pretty but on a Sunday morning was really busy. Lots of walkers, dogs, and other bikers. That said it’s close to the house and has some pretty bridges and creek views

Gary L. Haller Trail

excellent trail

September, 2021 by jokawood

Rode this trail today and I was very satisfied with the smoothness of it and the absence of vehicle traffic.

Prairie Spirit Trail State Park

Great Kansas Trail

September, 2021 by terriknkc

Very nice trail, nice variety of scenery. South of Ottawa is riding through farm fields so recommend skipping that section.

Arkansas River Bike Path

great ride

Indian Creek Bike/Hike Trail

Great for dogs!

July, 2021 by chanteevans7

We took our 3 dogs on a walk here and it was great! The bikers were super friendly and so were the other pedestrians. My dogs really enjoyed the creek too!

Kill Creek Streamway Trail

My go to trail

May, 2021 by ddcook

Beautiful in all seasons. Well maintained trail with conscientious/experienced cyclists, hikers and dog walkers. A hidden gem. I worry that this will change once the word gets out.

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

Prairie Sunset Trail

heavy industrial - miles 7-9

May, 2021 by vc2019

No real trailhead parking Hoover Dr end of this trail. It follows along the back door of commercial and industrial properties. Not much to see.

Flint Hills Trail State Park

ride from Council Grove

April, 2021 by jdfcsc

Took a break from crossing Kansas to ride a portion of Flint Hills trail. I road east for about 12 miles, then back. A good ride despite rather blustery weather on Apr. 21, 2021.
