I did a loop from the main parking down around the trout pond and back. Did 5.75 miles right about 2 hours. Makes for a nice hike for the midwest. Winds through mature Woodlands and back around near lake. I would say moderate is accurate. Some of it is rocky which I enjoyed. On a thawed January day most of it was muddy. Trail can connect to additional trails by the trout pond if you want to extend it. You can also cut the loop short in several spots throughout the trail if needed.

A friend and I recently hiked about half of this trail in three days. We did 60 miles in those three days, 22 miles the first day, 20 the second and 18 the third. We started at the Rantoul trailhead and ended in Admire. Overall the trail has great scenery and easy terrain. From Rantoul to the beginning outskirts of Osage City, the trail is nicely covered in limestone. Once inside Osage City the trail becomes grassy and eventually turns to basically mulch as they are still in the process of completing the limestone covering and bridge reinstallations. This did not slow our hike down. There is a sign that says trail closed coming out of Osage City, but it is still fine to use as long as there is no construction being done. We did encounter some closures about a mile west of Ottawa. There was a convenient detour that took us about half a mile north then two miles west then another half a mile south to get us back on the trail. In regards to water we each approximately carried a liter and a half and we were able to fill us at a Casey’s General Store as we were passing by or through each town. The only problem we encountered with water is when we came through Vassar. We could not find a convenience store there to refill, but about 7 miles west of Vassar there is a RV park about 60 yards off the trail where we found an outside water spicket. We got lucky with this find because we needed water for dinner and our only other option was to walk 1.6 miles to the nearest gas station. I would advise to use this spicket as it will save time and the water is clean, just be sure to let the spicket run for a bit. All in all, great hike, tough, but still great. Two things I would like to see improve are first many sources state the trail begins in Osawatomie, which it does, but there is no close parking to the trailhead. This is why we started in Rantoul. Secondly, I would like to see the undeveloped parts become more accessible because as a part of the American Discovery Trail, it deserves to have that same reputation as a greatly respected trail.

Good for young kids, nature walk, paved.

Finally had a chance to do some real trail running. I apparently was going the less traveled way as the only people I met we're coming in the other direction. The trail is fairly well marked with pink flags, but that didn't keep me from getting lost a couple times. The app helped me get back on track. Had to cut it short at the end as I couldn't find the last part, but logged 9 miles in all in just under 2 hours. I'll be back for the Psycho Wyco, just not sure if I will try 2 or 3 laps .

I’m not a fan of prairie trails, but I thought I would check out the lake cuz why not. The trails are many and well maintained, would be awesome to ride a horse at full blast through the field. Unfortunately, prairie hikes just aren’t that fun so I cut this one short.

I liked this trail. Easy navigated with lots of twists and turns. There was some mud in places but other than that it was a good hike. Good length and close by. Will do one again.

I enjoyed the trail. My first time here. I did the North trail and it was fine until about the last 200 feet as I returned to the car and it was very muddy and slippery.

Fantastic trail that I always run when visiting family in Topeka. Today, I ran 20 mi, 4x5 mi loops, the trail was in as good as expected shape for end of December trails for KS. Some mud, some washout, one spot a tree had fallen across the trail. Temps mid 30s with on/off light snow flurries. But overall, this trail can’t be beat if you’re looking for something off the beaten path nearby.

A pleasant surprise. Trail is in good condition. Not many views of the lake, but there is a stretch that’s lovely close to the dam. Length is closer to 10.5 to 11 miles. Ran in to 4 people on the trail.

Nice trail. Winter foliage provided many lake views. We did the Lake Henry loop with three kids ages 7-11. No problems.

This trail was very poorly marked and difficult to navigate.

Great trail to run. Saw about 30-40 Bald Eagles along the trail. Lots down near the dam at the end of the trail.

Easy hike on a perfect day. I can see where it wouldn’t be fun after a rain, but when it’s dry, it’s great.

This was the perfect trail to take our dogs on. Beautiful wooded trail and very well maintained.

We started the trail at 53rd and Adams. There was a parking lot off of 53rd street that made it easy to access. We walked south about 2 miles and it was a very easy trail.
