Great for walking for Lilly

Lots of wildlife. Deer, quail, coyotes, rabbits, raccoons, Fox, eagles(just last week) and possums! A few small snakes before cold weather and an extremely diversity of wildflowers and grasses! Easy trail and enjoyable!

How about north trail???

park at the soccer fields and go east if you run the trail. Awesome 4 mile loop, exactly

We planned 5.4 miles based on this app but ended up at 8.25 miles. It was a fun hike, but the signage is confusing in some places so we ended up having to backtrack quite a bit to get back on the correct trail. It is volunteer maintained, so it hasn't quite recovered from a lot of the heavy rain and flooding recently, but overall not too bad. Bug spray is still a must all the way in late September. Lots of shade cover throughout. Watch out for the cyclists on the trail.

Incredible array of various wild flowers and grasses

Nicely maintained part we went biking on. Lots of trees. Saw mom and baby turkeys.

fun times, use bug spray

Great adventure if you have nothing planned for the day. Make sure to take a camera.

Had trouble finding the trails but when I did they were awesome!

Great river side trails, hard pack. Challenging hill side trails when you head under the bridge!

Best trails in kc

Dog walking, mountain biking or trail running! Lots of trails

Nice quiet hike.

Blue river trail section is nice and easy. some bike and foot traffic. Once you cross blue river road and hike the Basement portion it becomes more challenging. Cliffs and rocks. Awesome trail, only downside is the road being so close.

First of all there's A LOT more miles of trails than described! Some areas heavily populated and some not at all depending on where you enter. I just recently found a 4.5 mile loop that was so peaceful and quiet, I didn't cross anyone but there were signs of recent trail use. I'm super glad I live near by, I use these trails frequently. It's a beautiful stretch of wilderness and even though it's inside the city you can feel like you're miles away from anything until you catch a glimpse of civilization. Stay away from the trails right by Blur River Road unless you enjoy seeing just how trashy people really are - PLEASE DON'T LITTER!!!
Do your research on the internet to find the best sections of these trails, after three years I'm still discovering new areas!

Great trails. Hike them all the time on my lunch break.

Great trail! Some areas on the river trail are pretty rocky which can be difficult with dogs. Pretty easy to follow the marked trails. A decent amount of traffic on the trail makes you feel like you won't be lost forever but isn't overcrowded. See my blog for more photos and reviews

This trail has lots of nice trees. Saw a snake. Watch out for horse poop during horse season.

Frickin sweet trail for dogs
