Good smooth well maintained concrete path. Got a path that leads down to the river and you can enjoy some of the sandy river bank. Great for dogs.

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.

Did this hike with an impromptu swim once I got to Milford Lake as my turn around point. Really nice route.

Mostly shaded over along with a few benches makes this trail a treat. You can hike, ride horses, mountain bike, swim and/or fish. This trail takes you from the Washington gate all the way to Milford lake.

Used to hike and ruck this trail frequently while stationed at Ft. Riley. A nice area between the north side of Junction City and Milford lake to relax and unwind after a long work week.

Good trail, plenty of spots to break from the path and find a nice spot by the river and just unplug with your K9, thumbs up
