It was a very peaceful morning for a hike. Almost to the end of the hike, I came into these pine tree area. I was so happy, fell like I was in the west coast or high mountain

Took my pup. It was a good hike. Trailhead says 6.5 miles. I'll record next time to see. Good elevation changes. Also, there is no lake on this trail.

The trail is primarily equestrian usage. Their are other trails in the park that are open to mountain biking and hiking that may be less competitve thatn McAdoo. Nice layed out trail for the area. Close to Kansas City, a big plus. Nice trail but not spectacular regarding unique trail features.
