Nice hike with the family. This trail is always a favorite. Great views of the Missouri River and the town of Leavenworth across the river. The trail is well marked and easy to follow.

My family loves going to this park, it's not too crowded and the trails are convenient. Not very challenging for serious hikers its more for those that just want a leisurely nature walk. A couple of the hills are pretty steep so be careful!

It was a great day for a hike & we just wanted a short one before heading back to the city. This gave a moderate challenge with the hill climb. The end was a bit disappointing. If there had been leaves on the trees you probably wouldn't be able to see the river.

A group of Pickleball players from Topeka hiked this trail starting at the mid point as an out and back. Easy trail with nice views of the river and wooded bluffs. Total distance was ~4 miles.

Good hike for the location. Waiting on fall to head back, should be beautiful.

Easy hike with decent views. Can imagine it'd be much more beautiful in the fall with the changing colors.

This trail was pretty, but it offered neither the variety of views offered by other trails in the park nor views of the river. When we used this trail, it had not been used recently, and the span of the trail had so many spiderwebs across it that my husband and I had to remove the webs at least every five feet the entire length of the trail. Grass and moss had grown lushly over spans of the trail. We turned back approximately 0.2 miles from the end because we were tired of knocking down webs.

My husband and I only walked the 1.8 mile stretch from the Weston Bend State Park down to the trail-head near Bethany. This park was gravel rather than paved, which we preferred. The trail was well-cared for and bright. It ran along the edge of Weston Bend State Park and was closely flanked by a railroad track. It had nice views of the river, a bridge over a small creek, and we saw a variety of wildlife, including squirrels and a small garter snake. I would recommend this trail for a gentle walk or bike ride.

Great trail.. we brought our dog for a morning hiking session outside KC. Didn't give it 5 only because the views weren't all that spectacular and the trail head was a bit deceiving. We ended up walking more than we needed to, which is fine just a little confusing.

A group of six got out there and enjoyed a great trail. The trail is a great length and leads to a great town.

Nice little hike. Keep dogs on leash. if they like bounding into the woods without looking they might fall off of a very high ridge/cliff.

Pretty trail, overlooks the Missouri River on the west side of the loop. Unfortunately, a coal train goes by every twenty minutes or so ruining the peace.

Nice and moderate hike. An easy out and back. Just over six miles if you go end and back to end. It is a mix of gravel road and concrete bike trail. Very clean hike. The scenery over the river is nice. This trail leaves no risk of being lost. Great for dogs.

Nice local trail for me at one time.
Good place to get out of the city and into nature.

Not the most scenic, but a nice set of trails. There are some views off of the west ridge, where you can look over into Kansas. I got about 2.5 miles in a loop. Part of the trail enters the paved course. You can copy and paste the link below for details.

We started at sunrise. Sight was beautiful. Overlook the river and trains. We also had three deer across our trail. We are going back soon. Well worth the 45 mins drives from my house. Wish it was a longer hike.

Ok, i finally did it. from down by antique shops at fork at hwy 92.
I used my Trek 7.3 stock with the road n tires. I will use my Trek 820 next time, it has twice the tire on it. Thus is a very cool trail for being mostly gravel, and it was a little deeper for my liking on that Trek fx 7.3.
our felt like I was going down a couple times.
it was washing me all over the trail. nice scenary. starting to get into some nice fall colors. This isn't the trail you would wanna put a trailer, child seat on with ya. I would take a pretty strong rider to get through it. Still I liked it alot.
