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 stuff
Ozark grey

Nice walk with paved trails. It has a few up and downhills.

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.

Close to home, good for walking Lilly

I love to walk this one.

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.

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.

nice, easy, and well maintained trail. The trail is mostly exposed to the sun with tree cover for only small sections, so bring sunscreen.

Thankfully we went on free day.. We loved all the beautiful flowers and running water. We hiked the West trail and enjoyed ourselves!

It's a nice path through a beautiful landscape, but it's a real shame that bikes are not permitted to use the trails.

I went in Mid February so the trail was not very pretty but it has lots of different paths. The paths are very easy and it's kid friendly. It does cost money to get into the park $3 per person and on Tuesdays it's free.

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.

Great walking trail with wide enough paths for the bike riders to pass by. Loved walking next to Indian Creek and crossing over several bridges. I just walked this back to back days and plan to be a regular...glad I found this trail.

Great training trail. Second time I hike this month. Even in a down pour it was fun.

Clean paved trails, mowed along the sides, well maintained lights, other amenities like the obstacle area, a building that I guess is available for rent, and the nature center! I like the trails with the tree cover.

There are few better places to walk or hike! If you want easy, there are paved paths around a lake/pond as well as through the woods. I prefer the natural paths, of which there are several. One year they ground up recycled Christmas trees and spread them on parts of the path that were wet - that fantastic pine scent hung around for quite a while. I miss my hikes at the Arboretum when spending my summers in Michigan!!

Part of OP Arboretum, so we walked this along with most of the other trails out there. Well-maintained and shady!

Part of OP Arboretum, so we walked this along with most of the other trails out there. Well-maintained and and near meadows a couple of times. One portion isn't mulched, so watch your maps closely.

Well-maintained, mostly flat, mulched trails of various difficulty. $3 entry per adult; $1 entry per 6-12yo. Most portions of the trail dog-on-leash friendly, including the international sculpture garden. Get your dog poo bags at the front and stock up; that's the only supply stop. Plenty of water stations along the way, though.

If you prefer not to get your shoes dirty on a trail, this is the place for you. I took my dogs and my five year old on this trail. It is all paved so you arent crawling through brush or overgrown poison ivy to get through.

I enjoyed this trail simply because my dogs and son were able to walk it easily.

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