I was impressed to find these trails in Topeka, particularly the wooded portion which treks down by the river for a bit. Be aware you are immediately beside an active train track on the deeper trail and that comes with loud horns. There is enough elevation change here to keep things interesting without being too challenging. My only real complaint is the way the trails are labeled, which is more of a color-coding by type than actual demarcation of different trails. So be sure to snap a picture of the map. Definitely worth exploring.

love these trails we hike these all the time with our 8 yrs old. so close to city but when you're up there it doesn't feel like, as they are quite and well shaded. some sections might get a little muddy after rain and some intersactions could be confusing.. i took a picture of the map in my phone that can come in handy..

This trail gives you the feel of being out in the woods yet you are still in the city. It's moderately difficult. There are many hills to hike up.

Nice hike. I'd call it easy as opposed to moderate.
