Jim P. Martinez Sunflower Trail

Love to ride, but not on this trail

August, 2018 by christabuddy

Wish they would take care of the bike trail. The expansion strips are too large of a gap. My husbands spokes on his wheels broke off, because of how bumpy it is! He had to replace his wheels which are not cheap. And his bike was brand new!! I love the trail, I just wish they would fix the gaps, so we do not ruin our bikes. Will not ride, until they are fixed. We drive to Wichita to ride on the trails there.

Flint Hills Trail State Park

Council Grove to Bushong

July, 2018 by yoder.kauffman

Rode on an unseasonably cool and overcast July day. Trail is in excellent condition. We rode our street bikes. This section is doable for the casual rider and for families. Take water, there are no services. Beautiful ride through the flint hills. Bushong is the high point in this section.

Talley Trail

Dry trail

June, 2018 by karlivejim

Not much to look at . Hardly any shade. Not fun or interesting . The asphalt made the walk miserable . No flowers no trees no birds

Accordion

Southwind Rail Trail

Nice ride

June, 2018 by fdowell

Rode this trail from Iola to Humbolt and back, and then stumble on the single track trail outside of Iola. That was really nice too! We camped in Humbolt and that was disappointing with the noise from a local plant and the bathrooms were quite dirty.

Riverfront Heritage Trail

Awesome

May, 2018 by lamborghiniman75

Spent way too long to give this trail a go. Good access from i35. Really a safe looking area at least during the day. Since go there I have gone there weekly to either Skate or jog. I haven't made it up the stairs and over the bridge as of yet though. Only Complaint, they need to add on! Take it past Isle of Capri on the other side of i35, looks easy to do.

Blue River Rail Trail

Nice ride with abundant shade in the morning.

May, 2018 by lbeatty

We had a good day on the trail in May. Saw deer, garter snakes, and redwing blackbirds. Love their song! Just wish there was a restroom facility at the Jayhawk Trailhead.

Flint Hills Trail State Park

Ottawa to Vassar and back.

April, 2018 by jwise2

Great ride on a super nice spring day. The trails were in very good condition. The only problem that we encountered was the 2 mile (2.5 mile?) detour that is west of Ottawa. It is on gravel roads, which is no problem for gravel riders. There are also a lot of dogs, most are of no consequence... but be on the lookout for an Ill-tempered pit bull on the west end of the detour. The owner was there and able to contain him so we could pass. This is the only reason I couldn’t give our experience 5 stars. Next

Haskell Rail-Trail

Great trail

April, 2018 by orlysud

Love it but wish it was a dirt trail like before and could be extended as it’s short. Just the same, once can always go to the Wetlands from there.

Burroughs Creek Trail and Linear Park

Great if you want to get away from cars

April, 2018 by orlysud

Paved, clean, fairly shady and easy to ride. Only problem is that one has to stop at every block due to traffic going west to East or visa-versa. Also, it’s way too short and wish the City of Lawrence would invest some of their money on extending the trail to go West to Clinton Lake. We need more dedicated trails for bikes in Lawrence without traffic.

Lawrence Levee Trail

LRT

April, 2018 by orlysud

Love this trail. I highly recommend this trail everyone including children as it’s a fairly easy trail. Children should always be escorted by a parent or their parents. I saw a 5 year old girl with her father in the trails once and was amazed how well she rode.

Gary L. Haller Trail

Great weekend activity

March, 2018 by deannepe

This is a nice trail for a longer ride between communities in Johnson County with spurs to destinations like Shawnee Mission Park, Mid-America Sports Complex, and the growing Lenexa City Center. There are a few steeper grades, but overall a good ride with family and friends.

Turkey Creek Streamway Trail

Local trail with access to farmer's market

March, 2018 by deannepe

An easy ride near my neighborhood. I enjoy waking up on a Saturday morning to ride this trail to the Merriam Marketplace for the weekly farmer's market. Local municipalities are exploring opportunities to connect to this trail via other on-street and off-street facilities.
