Deer Creek Trail Description

Topeka's Deer Creek Trail follows the eponymous waterway for more than a mile through the eastern part of the city. Just south of where Deer Creek meets Shunganunga Creek, the trail turns west, ultimately meeting the popular Shunga Trail at SE Golden Avenue. Although most of the Deer Creek Trail's route is dominated by views of industrial properties, the trail runs through a wooded corridor on the western side of Eastborough Park.

Shawnee County has long planned to extend the trail south from its current endpoint at SE 10th Street to Lake Shawnee at SE 29th Street. The extension would connect downtown Topeka to the scenic lake and its encircling trail. Initial plans call for the construction of a new vehicular bridge over Interstate 70, which would be specifically designed to safely accommodate cyclists and pedestrians.

Parking and Trail Access

There is currently no dedicated parking for the Deer Creek Trail, but on-street parking is available on the residential streets off SE 2nd Street (east of SE Golden Avenue). As always, be mindful of any local parking restrictions.
