Lisa H. on Shawnee Mission Park
nice,well marked trail.Best time to go is during the week. The red trail is long.Expect two hours.
Nice views and well marked trail. Difficulty is moderate at best. Bike riders routinely failed to identify themselves and the trail can be narrow so that can be a problem. The switchbacks are close to each other and the park is busy so I never forgot that I was in a public park (a negative in my view).
I love these trails. Every color trail offers something different. Personally, i love the yellow trail that isnt even on the map. This park is an all time favorite for both my kids and i.
Trails are beautifully outlined on the map, which are located throughout the trails. Also, trails are nicely maintained and shaded, so thats definitely a plus.
