Clean nice trail , brings you into downtown Weston

One of my very favorites. I love the west ridge trail as it runs high above the Missouri. I am usually the only person on the trail which is also nice if you prefer some seclusion.

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!

Easy to Moderate with clean trails and excellent views. Highly recommend.

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.

Great warm up trail. Good elevation changes, and the Overlook area is really beautiful late fall.

It was a good workout with lots of hills and beautiful views. Very peaceful.

Beautiful trail, it was definitely more hilly than I expected with the easy rating of the trail. Perfect length for a fall walk and well maintained.

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.

This trail, only moderately-difficult at one or two points, offered much for visual gratification. The landscape below the trees was beautiful, with lush undergrowth, vines climbing up the trees, and dramatic fluctuations of elevation. At 4-5 points along the trail we saw well-kept signs that offered insight into the speciation, migration, and survival habit of birds that live in the area. It was a short, enjoyable hike my husband and I plan to do again in the future!

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.

absolutely awesome

Nice paved trail through the woods. I LOVE this trail. It is challenging enough to get a good work out and very peaceful. I personally would never bike it.

Really nice hiking. The trails hold up when damp too.

Very nice paved trail. There were some trees down today, but that is expected after storms. I recommend taking the paved trail from the start and taking to the real trails up through the west ridge trail when you get to the opening off of the paved trail. It then loops back to the paved trail. Makes a nice hike and mix of terrain.

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.
