Mahaffie Creek Trail Description

Winding nearly two miles through suburban Olathe, the Mahaffie Creek Trail offers connections to the beautiful Mill Creek Streamway Park, schools and the city's northern neighborhoods. Much of the route is well-shaded.

At its northern end, you can connect to the Gary L. Haller National Recreation Trail to continue your journey for 17 miles.

From the trail's southern end, head northeast on the trail that parallels E. Kansas City Road to reach Mahaffie Farm in less than half a mile. The historical building there, built in 1865, once served as a stagecoach station and is now a museum offering hands-on exhibits on farming, frontier life and stagecoach travel. It was also a stop on the Oregon Trail, which pioneers used to head west in the 1800s, and the California Trail, the route of prospectors during the country's Gold Rush.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking can be found at Mill Creek Streamway Park (1700 Northgate Street) and Mahaffie Elementary School (1300 N. Nelson Road) on the northern end of the trail. On its southern end, parking is available at Olathe North High School (600 E Prairie Street).

Mahaffie Creek Trail Reviews

Decent trail

The first half mile of the trail is by far the best, aside from that it’s an easy trail to walk.
