The Whistle Stop Park meanders through Elkhart, Kansas, a community just north of the Oklahoma border. The path occupies a 23.5-acre slice of land between an active rail line and US 56.
Because the park is well-lit and the trail is paved, you probably will encounter lots of traffic, including inline skaters, joggers and families on group rides. The trail is maintained by the City of Elkhart, whose staff has installed a gazebo, restroom and other amenities. The park continues to be improved: over 150 trees have been planted since its opening in 1994.
Parking for the Whistle Stop Park is available in a dedicated lot on Morton Street, between Border Avenue and US 56.
"Peddled this clean neat Trail Sept 5, 2006. A nice exercise break on a trip from Dodge City to Albuquerque. The Elkhart people were very generous in the donations as indicated by the Memorial Plaques on Trees and Park fixtures."
