Did a backpacking trip with the Boy Scout troop, very scenic trail. Definitely doesn't feel like you're in Kansas.

Good smooth well maintained concrete path. Got a path that leads down to the river and you can enjoy some of the sandy river bank. Great for dogs.

Visited on St. Patty's day; clear, breezy day, 58 degrees absolutely beautiful! I don't know that it would be this nice in the middle of summer. Who knew this gem of earth was nestled in the middle of Kansas! Must explore more!

Underwhelming. It’s over before you even know it and nothing really special about it

Nice trail. It was quiet and peaceful and not so far from my home.

Beautiful hike! Very rugged terrain, lots of rocks, steep inclines, trees, and a few lovely views of the lake. I’ll be going back.

Gravel biking: every mile had to cross busy roads. Some required dismount due to ropes to prevent cars on path. Large and deep gravel in some places.

Nice trail. Lots of people on a nice day though.

We parked, paid 5 bucks, took the red trail, the longest trail, it was not good for hiking at all, quite boring through the pasture . Boring will not come back

Great wooded area. Clean clear water even in the coves. Very quiet, clean. Plenty of connecting trails to stay busy

Tucked away behind the city for a nice romantic or solo walk. In spring and fall the flowers are fantastic.

This really isn't a trail; just a short loop. Some good history here, and the view from the top is fun, but nothing fantastic.

Still a few muddy spots, but trails are mostly in good shape.

This is the best kept secret in Johnson County. Quite, clean, secluded, well maintained and well marked trails. By far my favorite trail around Olathe, DeSoto, Lenexa, Shawnee.

Stopped on our way through Kansas and got out hiking. Very little traffic the day we went. Had hoped to see some bison but not our day, hopefully next time.

Decent little park with some good photo opportunities. I drove over an hour to get here and you pay a $5 entry fee so I didn’t feel it was quite worth it. However it was completely dead and I ran into no one for 3 hours which is nice for me because I like to let my dogs run around and go crazy.

Beautiful prairie and wonderful trails. We went to the (I think it’s called) “Outback Country” where there were free roaming bison. We wanted to play it safe and give the bison their space so about 10 minutes into the hike after seeing a herd of about 10-15 we turned back. We enjoyed a lot of the other trails and I would definitely go again.

very easy to walk we had a toddler on a Cruz bike and stroller and we were able to do about five miles.

Used this trail for training for backpacking. Good trail not much elevation change.

I really enjoyed this hike. there are a number of different trails that intersect at various points so you can choose your own adventure.

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.

Nice short walk with dog en route from Kansas City to Colorado

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

Great scenic trail along the Kansas River. I hiked the trail and there were photo ops every step of the way. There were quite a few very steep inclines, which was nice. There was a large homeless encampment about 2/3 of the way through. 5.5 miles is pretty accurate and it does loop, which I didn't get from my brief look at it on Alltrails. I walked in expecting to go 11 miles total. (Even though it does say loop in the legend!

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.

This trail was fairly easy, and about 2.3 miles round trip. We finished in right about an hour an stopped to take a lot of pictures and climb on the rocks. You will hike a loop trail through a prairie and halfway through the loop, you will come to Wilson Lake, where there are some sandstone rock formations.

Longest of the trails at smp. Nice hike. Rocky but not difficult.

Easy...but very scenic with a lovely, well-kept lake and an impressive dam.

Great for long bike adventures with small towns. Not great if you are looking for big hills. Some stretches of the trail are so straight you can see a mile ahead of you.

Several short, hard hills if you hike it that way. Takes a while to learn as the trails are not particularly well marked.
