I would definitely do it again, it's nice, lots of rocks, cool scenery, great hike for being located in the middle of the city. Trail is well defined, though not necessarily marked, or blazed. Used for hiking and mountain biking.

beautiful but rocky path

Solid getaway hike in the city. Pretty easy, moderate elevation change, almost entirely in the trees. Not much wildlife or views that I saw, but peaceful nonetheless. Use the Record feature on the app to follow the trails because they aren't marked very well.

Rode the Rancho D-Lux trail for the first time. Great ride that was smooth and peaceful.

Quiet trail perfect for hiking, biking, and trail running.

This is the best mountain biking trail in Kansas City. It has something for everyone; I feel comfortable bringing beginners to rancho d-lux and feel challenged every time I ride woodchuck run. There's also a downhill only section (the black section on the map) on the south side of the trail off of woodchuck. It's great!!

Loved it!! So beautiful

I use this trail to train for my Rocky Mountain Hikes. It has a lot of variety and good spots to jog/run. I can use it for 12 mile training hike and not get bored. The expansion of the trail is nice!

One of my favorite trails in KC. Just a lot of fun with some hidden awesomeness

Short but convenient from much of Kansas City, Mo. Great for dogs that aren't fans of bikes.

love this place... trails for everyone.

Great trail(s) and gives you plenty of elevation but with the expansion, it can be hard to follow at points. Make sure you have the most recent map of the trail system!

Love it! I like hiking up next to the bluffs! Great for pictures! Great for working out!

Nice trail great potential but went too early in the season, beautiful weather but little to no greenery out yet. "march 23rd"

The trails are meant more for mountain bikers, so you may have to yield the way to a few you might encounter. Wear good hiking shoes or boots because the trails are rugged and rocky in most places. This is a great escape from the city that still keeps you in the city. I find the Rancho D-Lux trail to be great for hiking.

Lovely easy-to-moderate 2-mile (if you take all the various paths) trail. My small dog absolutely loved it. Nice rock formations, views, pretty forest and flowers, some wildlife. Hidden gem with early-out paths, several benches and a currently dried out creek bed. A little bit of trash here and there, but overall very pretty. Surface is mostly natural but occasionally gravel. Will definitely return.
