Skipped this trail/Park all together as it’s not dog friendly, and the loops are to short for more than a quickie . Nothing to see here

Just walked this trail today and in some spots it was kind of hard for me and my son's but the views from the top were amazing.

Loved all of the paved and forest trails! There is also a really awesome dog park here too!

Great views! I loved this run.

Enjoyed the hike and views of surrounding flint hills. Not the best time of year to see prairie life as most of the prairie grass had been burned for the winter.

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

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

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

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

Always one of my favorite short hikes. Usually very little traffic and I almost always see a few deer.

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

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.

Great trail

well marked. lots of pleasant miles available.

Great, well maintained rail-trail. I love it for long runs with the pup. Runs through rural Kansas countryside and through some small towns.

Very busy with lots of off leash pooches to greet you.

Great Trail. Some of the most breathtaking views I've ever seen in Kansas. Just incredible. Near the end of the trail heading back to the trailhead there is a tree that is straight out of a Tim Burton movie. Dead with wicked branches stabbing into the sky. We stood in awe and looked at it for several minutes. Hike this trail and enjoy life!

Good trail. A little climbing. Dog liked it.

beautiful hike but difficult, at least for us. def not kid friendly unless older and most def not stroller friendly.

Beautiful nature trail system that's good for hiking and trail running. There's a nice amount of ascent and the views at the top are definitely worth it.

beautiful in the fall. well marked and easy to navigate.

Beautiful hike. Not too challenging and offers a lot of great views that Kansas has to offer. Trail was clearly marked and in good condition.

I love to walk this one.

Very nice trail for hiking. Suggest hiking shoes as it is rocky in parts.

Kind of narrow rough concrete in some areas. somewhat scenic in areas. Good access to Farmer Market from the back.

Excellent training value at a conveniently close location. This loop was only about 6 miles, but I found it a nice mix of both medium- and small-hillwork. Moderately technical terrain, mostly hard doubletrack, and plenty windy when I ran it. The views were memorable, too. Good location for dedicated hill repeats (

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.

A nice easy hike that was well marked. There was plenty to see and took about two and a half hours at a leisurely pace.
