Western Heritage Trail is a 2.8 mile lightly trafficked out and back trail located near Manhattan, KS that features a river and is good for all skill levels. The trail offers a number of activity options and is accessible year-round. Dogs are also able to use this trail.
Nothing special, but it is a nice dry walk along the Blue River. Lots of fisherman below the dam. Only a couple other walkers on the trail. Good sized parking area; follow signs from Rt. 24 (Tuttle Creek Blvd) to Rocky Ford Fishing Area. The parking area is at about the mid-point of this out and back trail, so I walked first one way and circled the loop roads of the Rocky Ford Campground, back to the parking area, and then the other way to the road and back, making about a 3-1/2 mile track. Could perhaps use the lightly used gravel roads to create a loop hike of, perhaps, five miles.
