This is my favorite trail in Topeka. There are 4 different routes you can choose. For being close to the city you really do feel you are on a hike in nature. Plus when you get to the top of Burnetts Mound it is the highest point in Topeka, so there is an beautiful view of the city. Also if you hike later in the day you get beautiful sunsets. This is such a beautiful hike for an area that you would think wouldn't have anything nice to look at.

Fun trails! Easy to forget you're just a stone throw from everyone on the other side of the trees!
North trail much more open to sky. Pick if you'd rather stroll through the meadow.
South Trails, more shaded than not. Pick if you'd rather hike in the trees!

Still a few muddy spots, but trails are mostly in good shape.

Nice little trail. I was actually surprised by how interesting it was having lived in Topeka most of my life and had never hiked Burnetts Mound. Someone has set up a nice little stone table at the summit of Burnett's Mound on the first leg of the hike going up. It would be a good spot for a quick lunch as it has a pretty good view of Topeka. Due to its close proximity to my home I will most likely hike this trail again.

The main summit trail was only partially shaded and the wooded portion left much to be desired. Nevertheless, it was worth doing at least once for the view. The other smaller loops were fairly nice and well marked. I saw several bunnies and birds as well.

Nice varied trails with good views. Great place to hike up and watch sunset. Enjoy the irises someone took the time to plant at the top!
