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.

What a pleasant and challenging trail.
Found it on accident, and thoroughly enjoyed. I was the lone runner on the trail on a brisk fall day. The trail was rugged, yet very well maintained and marked. One of the very best that Kansas has to offer. I will go back specifically to run these trails.

A true mountain bike trail. Well maintained. Frustrating and challenging but not impossible. Also very long and a complete loop.

Great trail. One thing I loved about this trail is it was mostly covered. You do need to look out for spiderwebs lol. But this is easily one of the best trail I've hiked in Kansas.

This trail isn't too bad. Lots of trees and shade for for %90 of the trail. Only wildlife we saw was vultures. On top of those being the only animals we saw, there is a vulture nesting area the stretches around 50 yards you get a glorious smells on bird dropping during that period. You will be glad to know that there is an abundance of spider webs that you will run in to.

We hiked this trail on 6/25/17. Hopefully, it was not hot that day. We liked the trail because 90% of the trail is shaded. Most of the trees are pine. We did not see any wildlife. You would face many spider webs along the trail. All the water streams were dried. Overall, this trail is different from what you expect to see in Kansas. It is different from Konza or Tallgrass Prairie.
By the way, the fee for this park is $5 that you pay at a self-pay box. Don't forget to have a pen with you.

Feels like you've been transported to another place.

There are finally some decent maps available:
