Armourdale Levee Trail Description

The Armourdale Levee Trail offers an unpaved route (hybrids or mountain bikes are recommended) of just over a mile through Kansas City, Kansas, along a Kansas River levee. Opening in 2014, the trail is also known as the "Armourdale Hike and Bike Route – Island View Loop" after the river island which can be seen from the pathway. Although views from the northern end of the trail are at first industrial, they become more natural as you head south along the river. Note that there is no shade along the route.

Parking and Trail Access

A trailhead and limited parking is available at the north end of the trail under the Kansas Avenue bridge.
