Best loop is Mill Creek to College.

Very well marked and maintained trail. Will definitely hike again. A few areas had very fresh tree falls on the trail but nothing overly large or blocking to much of the trail. Was some trash at a campsite but I packed it out.

Nice place in the city. Enjoy taking my family here early in the morning. Get off the concrete and you might see some deer. Overall great city walk, we have seems snakes, owls, horses (people riding horses) and deer.

This trail is GREAT for a long run at almost anytime of the day because it has good tree cover throughout the trail. Also the pavement is well kept which means there is no need to worry about footing on a run.

Beautiful country but not a very long trail. Nice moderate walk.

Love all 3 of the Konza trails! The second and third loops are very sunny. They are especially beautiful in spring/early summer when there is an abundance of wildflowers!

Beautiful trail. Not much shade. I would advise wearing a sun hat.

Great little trail just outside the city. We did ~5.8 miles in ~2.25 hours connecting different trails. Some flat, some paved, some rooty, some rocky, a few small hills for a little more challenge in some places. Ticks are definitely present now (mid-June). Lots of shade on most trails, but quite a bit of sun exposure too. Bring plenty of water in the summer heat. Saw lots of butterflies and dragonfly-like things, and one little bitty harmless snake off the path. The observation deck had some nice purple and orange wildflowers as well. Appreciated no traffic sounds. Will definitely come back.

This was a nice trail once you got to the wooden section off of the asphalt. Would recommend to friends.

This could be a much better trail. unfortunately it has been ruined by littering. This app only shows 2.2 miles of sidewalk trail. There is actually another 5 miles of dirt trail here. I wish it had more elevation gain.

Fun outing. Not much of a hike really but I enjoyed it immensely. Unbelievable views and very cool to see the castle

Loved this hike! Beautiful views and well marked trails. Beware though, LOTS of poison ivy and a few parts of the trails that were very wet so dress appropriately.

One of my favorite trails! Easy bike trail with some decent climbs mixed in. Not too heavily traveled.

Beautiful hike that our whole family loves! Our four kids get excited every time we mention it. Best advice is to get there when the trail opens. We weren’t on the trail five minutes before we spotted dear grazing near the bridges.

The trail was beautiful, but the State Park map was incomplete.

Good trail for conditioning.

My friends and I went on a Saturday afternoon in early Spring. Very easy trails! We were very happy that they had dog friendly trails that they highlighted for us to take the puppy on! It was a nice afternoon and we were able to see different plants that were starting to come up.

This trail is great for a family ride, single adventure, jog or walk on. The underpasses make it very pedestrian friendly with a great environment to take your stress away. You'll pass along many neighborhoods as well as store fronts that will aid in your thirst or hunger needs. I've riden nearly all of the trail it doesn't disappoint!

Pretty views and some wildlife.

This is a national treasure. It is about 75% of the remaining tall grass prairie in the world. That is because it is one of the most endangered ecosystems in the world with only about 4% remaining world wide. See the flowers and grasses that once covered most of the Midwest from Texas to Canada. See the last of a few genetically pure Bison in this insurance heard. The trails and visitors center are lovingly curated and protected by The Parks Dept and the Nature Conservancy.

This is a beautiful trail that crosses a number of areas of the city including railroads, ponds, bridges, ballparks, tree lined pathways, and parks. It’s a great day ride and gives you the opportunity to ride to the top of a high bluff overlooking the valley below. You’ll want to come back to ride or walk again.

This is a bad biking trail. It’s dangerous too. There’s mud on the trail below the overpass, so it’s slippery. The trail is not maintained well either - downed tree limps, lots of bumps and cracks in asphalt. There are very few handicap ramps at street junctures. And there are too many sharp turns.

I love this trail!

Outstanding trail for biking and walking. I’ve ridden this trail countless times and enjoy the trees, ponds, traversing in and out of the various area of the city and wildlife along the trail.

before moving to Olathe KS we read about the trail and convienence that it offers. we have been here for 6 weeks and have enjoyed nightly bicycling on it with our two young children too. it is everything we have read or heard and then some. It can get busy in portions depending on time and neighborhood. Great job KS!

This was a great place to visit. The map they gave me confused the heck out of me towards the end. Wish they had better landmarks on the trail map to identify where you really were. I got lost and was either on the white or blue trails. I don’t know. Lol I had to put the map down and try to figure out where I was. It didn’t help much with the one they gave me. But it was ok with that part. Really enjoyed my day! Would definitely recommend it. I will come back someday!!

Horse thief trail is part of a much larger trail that runs throughout the park. It varies in terrain. The trail has a ton of ticks. Bring spray. Be prepared to cross through water. Plenty of wildlife.
This would be the best hike in Kansas if it wasn’t for the ticks.

Beautiful trail, we went in the am and flowers were blooming and smelled amazing. Enjoyed all the bridges over the beautiful creek around 127th & Pflumm. Very enjoyable.
