Kill Creek park trails are located just outside of DeSoto, near Olathe, Kansas. The trail is primarily used for hiking & mountain biking. Three trails; Hank, Eddie, and the connector trail.
Nice scenic hike with a few creek crossings. Saw a couple deer along the way. Trail is mostly flat with just a few elevation changes.
Well maintained mountain bike trails, rocky and uphill in spots. The connector trail is mostly downhill, and somewhat rough ride. I usually ride the loop counter clockwise but both ways probably have equal elevation gain/loss. Loop only takes 15 or 20 minutes. The trail across the creek is more technical, takes you on the side of bluff next to the creek. The trail getting to the loop is longer than the loop. Uphill most of the way to the loop, take the loop clockwise, you'll go through a flat section then an intense climb before getting to the gnarly creek bed. Wear a helmet!
The trail itself was nice. But we came home with more tics and fleas than we ever have before. We had fun hiking but paid for it dearly with horrible itching for days afterwards. I know to expect bugs on hiking trails but some are worse than others. This is definitely one of the worst ones. I won't do it again.
I really enjoyed this trail system. It has a great mixture of paved and unpaved (rocky) paths. It has lots of choices of paths to take. The wooded areas are nice when the sun is hot. Be prepared for wet shoes at creek crossings. It wasn't deep, but not a clear dry path across them. The paths are easy to follow. We spent 2.5 hours here and didn't see half of the trail. We loved it!
Beautiful trail with a lot of path options. Some of it is paved and some is through the woods. Multiple creek crossings so be prepared to have squishy shoes.
One of the best Trails systems in Johnson County
this trial was beautiful. You may get wet when crossing the stream. I cant wait to go back when its spring outside.
