This trail is great for a family ride, single adventure, jog or walk on. The underpasses make it very pedestrian friendly with a great environment to take your stress away. You'll pass along many neighborhoods as well as store fronts that will aid in your thirst or hunger needs. I've riden nearly all of the trail it doesn't disappoint!

Pretty views and some wildlife.

Full of bums. Earlier this year a woman was nearly raped while running on it, and I'm sure it's not the only time. Bring pepper spray, a baseball bat, a gun, and bail money.

This is a bad biking trail. It’s dangerous too. There’s mud on the trail below the overpass, so it’s slippery. The trail is not maintained well either - downed tree limps, lots of bumps and cracks in asphalt. There are very few handicap ramps at street junctures. And there are too many sharp turns.

Outstanding trail for biking and walking. I’ve ridden this trail countless times and enjoy the trees, ponds, traversing in and out of the various area of the city and wildlife along the trail.

before moving to Olathe KS we read about the trail and convienence that it offers. we have been here for 6 weeks and have enjoyed nightly bicycling on it with our two young children too. it is everything we have read or heard and then some. It can get busy in portions depending on time and neighborhood. Great job KS!

Beautiful trail, we went in the am and flowers were blooming and smelled amazing. Enjoyed all the bridges over the beautiful creek around 127th & Pflumm. Very enjoyable.

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.
