Awesome park for hiking, trail running or mountain biking.
By far the best trails I have found in KC. Lots of options to go off the pavement into more rocky terrain with a little challenge. As well as some pavement. Pretty views of the lake as a bonus.
Nice paved trails. Plenty of scenic miles to cover if you choose.
Beautiful lake views. Paved trails. Great for biking or walking.
My fiance and I did this trail with our 2 youngest children ( 15 & 11 ). Even though we only did just under 3 miles it was great and we all enjoyed it. The trail along the river can be a little challenging but is worth the views.
