Great trail for walking, running, or biking. Tons of locals use it. It's mostly flat and an easy ride. I really have a hard time understanding why it's marked as moderate. There's some great views of the creek and it's a fun bike ride in fall. The trail is long too. You can ride this trail for hours.

I love this trail. A nice mix of nature, residential neighborhoods and urban atmosphere.

I work nearby and this paved trail is a great spot for a lunchtime walk. Trail is right along the river, has lots of tree cover and several benches and even swings where you can stop, sit and watch the river.

Good walking/Running around the park. Only bad thing is all the Geese around the park. In some areas, you have to dodge all the poop on the sidewalks. But, still a nice park!

Great park. Derby has invested and continued to invest in making this a great place to go for outdoor activities. The hiking trail is easy and winds along a creek in the east side of the park. Even though this park is very active, wildlife, especially birds are found all over. The paths around the lake are wide sidewalks with signs that clearly show different distance options. Something new to the park is the story walk, which is updated monthly,.

I work in this area for a local school and I hike/run/walk and explore this trail on a weekly basis. It’s a great place to be during the day. After hours it’s not safe. Please enjoy during the day!

I love to walk this one.

City Park, great winding paths that dip into trees at one location. Short hiking trails off paths along creek. Bathrooms and porta toilets. Surrounding soccer fields and the pond. Kids play area also.

We took our kids and dogs starting near 103rd and Antioch. There is a small loop near a playground and tennis courts. Lots of trash from recent creek flooding and no lightning under the bridges. I would not be comfortable alone even though it is a safe area. Otherwise a nice easy loop for a quick walk.

Nice paved trail along the river. Did this on a Sunday mid day and not very crowded. Mostly bike riders. Goes through a nice residential area and well maintained.

Easy walking route along creek. The "trail" is currently closed at 2nd Street due to bridge construction.

Some people are worried to go here because of the murders, but it is VERY safe and family friendly. I'm always finding my bike down there and there are lots of kids and couples walking their dogs and tennis players. It is not sketchy it feels very safe.

Very nice small park where one can circle the lake by use of the sidewalk or add additional distance with side roads and mulched paths.

This was my favorite place to bike in Kansas City before we moved! We could easily ride 30+ miles and it was pretty easy!

paved and well maintained. perfect for our fam with toddler and pup. we can toss the toddler into a wagon and pull her when she gets tired. it's relatively flat and runs across a few playgrounds with water fountains. had some trash here and there from running through the city.

very nice trail! I would have considered this an easy trail instead of moderate. I loved it either way.

Nice day for a walk. Great area, saw some Mallard Ducks in and around the creek. Lots of traffic noise in one area of trail but otherwise very peaceful.

Really good for early morning runs, not a lot of people were there so it was peaceful and quiet.

This trail is great in the early morning when it's not so busy. You can get a great ride, walk or run in.

Fairly busy trail. Great for walking, running, or bike riding. My son learned to ride a bike here. Lots of shade with a creek along most of it for the fog to grab a drink.

Decent trail for riding, walking, or running. Easy and paved the entire way. Good for kids, although does lack a little adventure to it.

I've biked sections mostly between Corporate Woods and Mission Rd, both recreationally and biking to/from work. Parts of the trail are very secluded from the nearby city life and are very peaceful and relaxing. Definitely a great JoCo trail.

Nice, non busy trail in a decent location.

Council Grove is a rural Kansas town with a ton of History. It is a destination for history buffs. You could spend a good part of a day checking it out.
