Riverwalk Trail (KS) Description

Located in Junction City (about two hours west of Kansas City), the Riverwalk Trail winds along the north bank of the Republican River for nearly five miles between Fort Riley and Milford Dam. The crushed-limestone trail connects to the Milford State Park trail system via the Old River Bluff Trail, making for a continuous 14-mile ride. Along the way, look for bald eagles perched in the treetops.

Parking and Trail Access

There are two trailhead locations: one on the west end of the trail at the Outlet Park tube area below the Milford Lake Dam and, on the east end of the trail, north of the Washington Street bridge.

Riverwalk Trail (KS) Reviews

Good One

Started from south trailhead. Very nice crushed stone path. Large parking area with pit toilet restroom. Parking area could have used a good cleanup. Very trashy. Trail was nice and clean though. Saw a number of walkers/runners within first mile of trail and then no one. The trail zig and zags through the trees and along the river offering views of it on occasion. The trail is on part of Fort Riley and a portion is well marked to stay on trail due to presence of old unexploded ordnance. Not shown on the traillink map but at about 2 mile point the trail splits and then rejoins about a mile later, either direction is nice. One small section has some erosion and caution is needed in that area. Overall nice trail through the trees. Would do this one again.

perfect trail on a hot day

This trail has lots of shade trees which is perfect on hot sunny days! Great distance for a group to bike. Scenic and well marked! Will bike there again !
