Manhattan Linear Park Trail Description

The Manhattan Linear Park Trail will eventually circle the city of Manhattan, Kansas, but as of early 2012, the trail was 9 miles long and forms ring about two-thirds of the way around. The trail surface varies from crushed limestone to concrete sidewalks and crosses only a few roads.

Part of the trail skirts the Kansas River atop a levee, winding around the southern edge of the city through a largely rural landscape. Where the trail heads north again toward the city, it links shopping districts with suburbs. Trail amenities includes signage, benches and distance markers.

Parking and Trail Access

There are 10 access points along the trail. Park at Pottawatomie Ave. near Manhattan Ave., off US 24 near the river and off Hayes Drive south of Casement Road.

Manhattan Linear Park Trail Reviews

Decent Trail

Well used. I have run on the majority of this trail. Would be fine for Cycling with a hybrid, Gravel or mountain bike. The Levee portions of this trail has nice views of the river.

Average Trail

Path is 3/4th crushed stone when you do come across paved sections it makes you thankful. There are multiple points of entry and exit along the road. Path isn’t very scenic but still a worth while trail to explore.

Linear Trail, Manhattan Kansas

I walked a section from Anderson ave to Manhattan ave S on a very windy day. Most of this section was along the river and lined with trees so the wind was not bad. Great walk. A few joggers and cyclists were out. A little city and country mixed in.The section starting at Pecan Circle was supposed to be the beginning of a scaled section of the solar system. Mercury was marked and the next marker was Saturn.????? I was disappointed but maybe it was never finished? Great trail to walk or bike along. Thanks!

great resource!

LT is a great resource! I am out riding on it whenever I can and especially like the off-trail areas -- some of which can be quite nice. I am thankful for the tranquility the LT has provided me over the years!!

It's a walking trail...

It's good as a walking trail on the edge of town. Not much scenery and a lot of traffic.

Great trail for the family

This is a great trail to ride with your family. I have a 9 and 13 year old. We ride it every weekend.
