Sedgwick County Zoo/Park Path

Sedgwick County Park

June, 2017 by debbya34

Love it! Clean, sitting areas, well keep, awesome trail!

Prairie Spirit Trail State Park

GREAT TRAIL EXPERIENCE

June, 2017 by kcwyks_tl

We took a ride from the trailhead at Princeton KS, about 17 miles to Garnett KS, where we ate lunch at a restaurant on the town square, and returned that afternoon. This trail has excellent surface condition, good vegetation control, safe bridges, and nice variety of scenery in open space and deep forest cover. Bathrooms and water available at Princeton, Richmond, and Garnett. Its a nice day trip from Kansas City to get out in the country.

Blue River Rail Trail

GREAT TRAIL EXPERIENCE

June, 2017 by kcwyks_tl

We're in our 60s and look for trails where we can park our car safely, bike 20-40 miles to a place where we can stay comfortably, then return the next day. The Blue River Trail, in combination with the Chief Standing Bear Trail of Nebraska gave us such an experience, one way distance of about 38 miles. (See our review of that trail also.) We elected to start in Marysville KS on a warm summer day, and go to the end of Standing Bear trail in Beatrice NE. Both cities have nice variety of services for the tourist. Blue River trail has excellent surface conditions, good vegetation control, safe bridges, mileage markers and minimal inclines. The Blue River Trail passes through a nice variety of open space and deep shade, but has no water/restrooms, or towns for services on the way. There are limited services on the Chief Standing Bear Trail after you get into Nebraska. Good wildflower and wildlife trail, bring plenty of water and hats/sunscreen.

151st Street Path

Nice ride

June, 2017 by j30trouble

I have ridden this trail a lot. It crosses many streets so you have to be very careful when riding it. Also there are numerous businesses that have driveways exiting onto 151st St and drivers have a tendency to only look eastward for oncoming traffick. I have had a few motorists come very close to hitting me when I was riding east on the path because the motorist didn't pay attention to bikes on trail.

Arkansas River Bike Path

nice with few stops

June, 2017 by reverendstark

You can go along way on this path. You can start pretty far south(I have started at the dog park at hydraulic and i135) and go all the way to Sedgwick county park. This might be several paths but most of it is Arkansas river path. Lots of path. Few stops.

K-96 Bicycle Path

traffic

June, 2017 by reverendstark

Lots of stops on busy intersections. Many automobiles entering crosswalks.

Gary L. Haller Trail

Gorgeous and busy - watch out for others

May, 2017 by robindeawaugh

Rode this and enjoyed even though there are several steep grades. Flowers in bloom and cows in the pasture to see. Many families out and dog walkers so be considerate.

Arkansas River Bike Path

Some parts flooded

May, 2017 by robindeawaugh

Enjoyed the well maintained trail from Fairfield Inn to the Keeper of the Plains statue. After that the trail deteriorated - several dead birds on the trail and approximately 1 mile from the statue the trail was flooded!

Turkey Creek Streamway Trail

great walk

May, 2017 by widmertiffany15

Kids really loved it! Lack of bathrooms is an issue if you have kids though

Little Mill Creek Trail

Love this trail

April, 2017 by tim23

This is probably my favorite trail in the KC metro because it feels like you're stepping into a hidden world. You descend the steps from 87th Street and suddenly you're on this winding path through people's gardens and the smell of lilacs. The trail winds through groves of historic trees, a beautiful park, meadows and some shady cliffs. It's not the most strenuous walk around, but for good exertion and a great atmosphere, it's perfect.

Lehigh Portland Trails

You want it? Lehigh's got it!

April, 2017 by billsjunk20032003

The Lehigh Trail, at the south edge of Iola, KS has something for everyone. The main trail offers a hard-packed limestone screening surface, firm enough for hiking, biking, wheel chairs, and strollers, and is an excellent surface for the casual hiker/biker. For those who want something more challenging, there are single-track trails over rocks, through wooded areas, through tall grass, and along the edge of its namesake rock quarry. Lehigh has it all!

Gary L. Haller Trail

Beautiful Biking

April, 2017 by jiffmom

This paved trail is well-maintained, with gorgeous scenery. At the northern end you can keep going to the Kansas River and a view of the Bald Eagles. There are challenging stretches to keep your blood pumping as well as many places to stop and rest or picnic.
