The trail at Fancy Creek offers 6 miles of mountain biking and hiking for advanced outdoor enthusiasts. This trail provides users with varying and rugged terrain and beautiful Kansas vistas. Experienced mountain bikers will find this a challenging course and it is one of the best in Kansas. Winding through 6 miles of dense cedar forest into open native grassland, the trail runs along rocky ridges with scenic overlooks along the way.

Feels like you've been transported to another place.

There are finally some decent maps available:

Don't forget the bug spray and watch out for the massive spider webs every 5 steps spanning the trail. Other than that it was a great trail, dont go right before dark, leave yourself a few hours to get through it all.

It was a very rugged, and wooded trail, looks like Eastern KY, there were a few forks in the trail well into it and didnt explain which way to go, the trail was shaded almost the entire time, I would rate at the moderate level, may not be for kids under 10 yrs old.

Nice Trail not difficult I would agree that maps would be nice. The trail is in the shade about 90% of the time which is a good thing in August in Kansas. The first time on the trail the gun range can make a person a little nervous so some signage would be helpful just to but your mind at ease.

Fun bike trail. I especially like the gun barrel areas. Beware of ticks.
