very cold today, yet peaceful. wind chill below zero.

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.

Well maintained walking trail. High traffic even though it was a cold day. Has a few Spurs off into the woods but mostly just walking around the playground, field, and lake.

Recommended for anyone that wants a good get away for a short period. I hiked at a moderate pace and completed the trail, with detours, in just over 2 hours. It’s really pretty out there.

Good for young kids, nature walk, paved.

I came here not knowing what to expect-usually, if I want to hike, I drive the seven hours to Colorado. This may not be the Rockies, but I was quite pleased with the trail! It was easy to follow, gave what might be the best views in Kansas, and throughout my day, I saw more bison than people. All in all, it was a windy but beautiful way to spend three hours.

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 .

Did a 2 night backpacking trip here, The trail is no longer submerged in water and there isn't too much mud, However there are sections of the trail that don't get to much use. parts of the trail are covered with downed trees and driftwood. there are some creek crossings where there are no bridges. the trail was easy to follow because there are frequent blue blazes on trees and rocks. if you decide to come out just know you will be bushwhacking and getting dirty. Beautiful land though

Good for a walk or pushing a stroller.

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.

Super easy paved walk around a nice park for families

Parked at the dog park and did a nice 3ish mile loop back to the car with the kids and dogs. The route was paved, mowed grass and gravel at various places. Stayed along the river as best we could. Beautiful chilly winter morning and we only saw a handful of other people.

Beautiful, mostly woods with fantastic views of the lake and some impressive bluffs. the trail gets a little swampy in spots. I recommend going on a nice winter day when the vegetation doesn't block your view.

I would not recommend this trail unless you have a horse or a mountain bike. The signs that say “Please don’t ride your horse if trail is wet or muddy” don’t really seem to apply. Spent most of the time trying not to roll an ankle. Not a lot of opportunities to enjoy the views around you because you need to spend most of the time looking down.
