Blue River Parkway Trail Description

The Blue River Parkway Trail winds along both banks of its namesake river on the southern outskirts of Kansas City. The paved route begins in Minor Park and heads north, passing Alex George Lake and Blue River Park, before ending shortly after an I-435 underpass.

At its northern end, the trail connects to the Indian Creek Bike/Hike Trail, which continues southwest from where the two trails meet (near the confluence of Indian Creek and the Blue River) for 26 miles to Olathe, Kansas.

Parking and Trail Access

On its southern end, parking is provided in Minor Park. Farther north, you’ll find another parking lot at the entrance to Alex George Lake and also at Blue River Park.

Blue River Parkway Trail Reviews

Kansas City is doing an excellent job in building this trail. They just opened the bridge over Indian Creek and it is supposed to take you close to the Plaza. The trail is not open too much north of Indian Creek but with the money spent on the bridge it will have to go somewhere nice.
