Low water crossing may be dangerous after heavy rainfall. Most of the path is lightly shaded. Most paved, there are a couple trips down to the river.

Wide and paved, mostly flat. Unexpected multiple waterfalls, rock formations, and wildlife. Very well kept, and a few nice bridges. Beautiful woods surround the trail. The woods are under threat [planned projects by the Park Hill School District] of being torn down, so enjoy them while you can.

Sorry northlanders, my tender freefolk, but this trail is so boring. I started in the middle at kc northern railroad trailhead. I made it south to the riverfront park which is closed due to it being a sandbar (I explored anyway) to find a gaggle of tugboats. Lovely. But the trail itself was dull. The north side of the trail seemed more scenic, but about .25 miles north of the kc railroad trailhead it was completely flooded. Bring your waders! I went to the north of the trail at Barry road, but was just bored as heck at that pt. Save your time and do blue river parkway

Fantastic paved trail for biking and walking/running. Hills aren’t overly stressing, but rather help add to the workout. Beautifully kept.

Long hike but easy walking and mostly shaded with pleasant views of trees, river falls, valley views, friendly patrons but watch out for serious bikers. A convenience store or miniature train ride awaits you halfway if you want a break. This is our "go to" trail. One part is a large tunnel that goes under 152 HW. Temperature cools there and the kids can yell or whistle for sound effects.

Line Creek Trail I've been using this trail for bicycling, for about 3yrs now. It is a pretty predictable trail, and in my opinion is the northland premier trail. I usually park just down from Argosy casino, at the riverfront park. I ride up and over to city of Riverside,at this point just in past the skste park , some people loss trail, but you just have to go on road through intersection where QT, and Corner Cafe are located, cross over ku n front of Corner cafe, Sonic, then you'll see trail drops down, and takes you under bridge, and again new visitors, feel like they lost trail again, but continue up til you see park on the right, you'll again see trail, as it swerves through park. You will the start the somewhat shady part of this trail, with the creek running along side trail, with plenty of benches to take breaks, etc. I found the Riverside ice rink, and pool, in summer I have rode to this point, and I think the pool only costs like 1.50, and I've never seen it busy. so l paid and swam for 30min, ate lunch, and dried of and started off fresh and revived. Good thing, because you will have to go up a very steep grade, its steep, but not that long. So just power up it, then you will be at the highest point on this trail. you also have a fork in the trail, you can go right and there is the best lil store around he sells pizza by the slice, fresh fruit and vegetables, great place, with a pavillion and picnic tables. anyhow you can take this trail all the way up to Target at Barry rd. then I guess the 152 trail starts there and it is also a good trail. GET OUT AND TAKE ADVANTAGE OF MO. TRAILS. YOU WILL BE IMPRESSED. I PROMISE.

I loved this trail! It’s very flat and has some good views, but I wish it didn’t start at the casino.

Lovely hilly (for running, not for hiking), shaded trail, though the southernmost miles take you onto a busy road before you get back on the trail. Just wish it had some water fountains!

We always start out in the middle at the Line Creek Trailhead. There is a little mini train the kids can ride during the weekend. If you go left you'll come up on a beautiful little creek the kids love to stop and play in. It's also the sunnier side so we avoid it on hot days. If you go right at the trailhead it is very shady and perfect for hot, sunny days. You'll see a beautiful little waterfall at the 5 mile marker. The trail is paved and great for bike rides or walks. The community center has a bathroom and concession stand with the best hotdogs ever! *Kansas City Northern Miniature Railroad info- http://kcparks.org/places/kansas-city-northern-railroad/
