Nice quick walk in Independence. All crushed gravel trail with several off-shoot trail paths if you want to explore more. Play tennis afterwards....Pull up my recording for a virtual tour.

Unilever factory smells are intense. Signs of rough camping are aplenty. I personally would not recommend this trail. I did see a beautiful butterfly. That was the high point of my day. Up the road from Sante Fe Park are some wagon swales that was a better use of my legs to see

This trail is trash. Debris everywhere. A horrible smell that kept getting worse caused us to turn around. It was unbearable.

Short little trail off a park that has baseball fields, children’s play area and tennis courts. Trail is gravel and the foliage is beginning to encroach on the path.

This was my first time on the trail. I enjoyed it. Nice Graceland trail, wildflowers, dog friendly. Will visit again even though it is short.

Unremarkable gravel trail that runs next to train tracks and an electrical substation. Lots of train noise.

This is not in George Owens park. This is the Lipton conservation land next to Santa Fe Trail Park and the Unilever plant.

Gravel trail through brush. Nothing scenic.
