Shawnee Mission Park is a 7 mile moderately trafficked loop trail located near Shawnee, Kansas that features a lake. The trail is rated as moderate offers a number of activity options. Horses are also able to use this trail.
There are three bike/hike trails here. Violet loop is an advanced trail that is pretty rocky. Orange loop which is an intermediate trail. The violet trail is a lil too rocky for my liking. Although, the orange trail is a blast! You pick up some serious speeds at times.I ride it at-least once a week.
Nice to have a great trail that doesn't take days of traveling. Great for preparing / testing gear for adventure trips!!! Well maintained and can be as hard or easy as you'd like to make it.
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).
Natural trails with several loop options, well maintained and well marked
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.
Fun to bring a dog
