I love coming here, but every time I do there are people out here with their dogs off leashes. I love dogs and have 4 of my own and take them with me all the time. I just wish everyone would keep their furry friends on leashes.

My wife and I did this hike about 2 years ago when our son and our daughter-in law were stationed at Ft. Riley. It was an ok hike/ walk with the family and dogs. Living in the Pacific Northwest, it's a little unfair to compare this trail to those of say Oregon or Washington. The Republican River is a nice river that looks like it would be a blast to kayak on though.
