The Burroughs Creek Trail and Linear Park runs from 11th to 23rd streets along an abandoned rail corridor just west of Haskell Avenue in Lawrence, Kansas. The trail was made possible through the work of the city's Parks and Recreation and Public Works departments as well as neighborhood associations.
The 1.7-mile trail follows Burroughs Creek and features extensive landscaping and benches. Evidence of the area’s rail history is still in place, with tracks heading into a large rail yard visible north of E. 11th Street. In the south, the trail connects directly to the Haskell Rail-Trail—the first operational rail-trail in Kansas—as well as Haskell Indian Nations University.
This trail is an integral part of the developing 22-mile Lawrence Loop around the city.
Parking is available at the north end of the trail at Hobbs Park, with an on-demand traffic signal for pedestrians to cross E. 11th Street. Additional parking can be found on neighborhood streets adjacent to the trail.
