it was a great trail just lots of spiderwebs that you would constantly run into. other than that it would be great to do again.

Follow up edit: Kansas City Parks and Recreation Department has no record of there being a trail here. The pedestrian bridge exists only to help children safely cross the steam on their way to school, not as any part of a maintained trail system.

As others said, lots of spiders. This seems less like a hiking trail and more like a game path. It is not marked and in several places completely disappears. I'm not sure this was ever a real trail and not just a path back to some homeless encampments.

terrible path. not marked. trashed. homeless shelters everywhere. more spiders than Hogwarts no joke. put off spray on if you tackle this trail and a walking stick to move webs.

Agree with last review. The spiders are out of control. Im not too creeped out by spiders but, it is obnoxious to walk into web after web. Made it 20’ into the trail and walked through about 4 webs.

This looks like it could be a great hike but the spiders were ridiculous today! Reminded me of Raiders Of The Lost Ark! Had to abandon trip. ☹️

It’s pretty good elevation change which I love, but I kept having to consult the map. Doesn’t seem like anyone takes care of it so you’ll find yourself having a “where is the trail” moment or three. This is likely not the case in summer but there’s your Jan 2018 review.

Quiet little suburban trail wandering through a small creek bluffline. Packed earth, and narrow at points, heavy underbrush likely during growing season. No markings
