Redbud Trail Description

The Redbud Trail in northeastern Wichita is built along the former Burlington Northern Santa Fe rail corridor. Along the 2.5-mile route, the trail passes city parks, employment hubs, and the Wichita State University campus. The trail is planned to one day stretch 11 miles.

Most of the trail is surfaced with concrete, but there is a temporary gravel surface at some road crossings.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking, drinking fountains, and restrooms can be found in nearby Fairmount Park (1647 N. Yale).

Redbud Trail Reviews

Nice ride with a fine picnic spot!

I walked the first .75 mile starting near the I-135 bridge. Not much shade on this part of the trail. I got out there later than planned so I didn't walk as far as I wanted due to the heat.
The road crossings mentioned in the other review have been completed, at least on the section I walked.
I'm looking forward to walking the rest at some point.

Path is not yet finished. It is mostly paved with the exception of the road crossings where it is still gravel/ballast.
