Best Trails

Shawnee Mission Park

Shawnee, KS

There are three bike/hike trails here. Violet loop is an advanced trail that is pretty rocky. Orange loop which is an intermediate trail. The violet trail is a lil too rocky for my liking. Although, the orange trail is a blast! You pick up some serious speeds at times.I ride it at-least once a week.

As unique as the rock formations were, the trail didn't have too much to offer.

Fancy Creek Mountain Bike Trail

I've started hiking as a hobby over a year ago and have hiked seven trails, and Fancy Creek's trail blew my cosmos. I didn't even feel like I was in Kansas anymore. Be warned, it's a rocky, dynamic, and elevated experience.

It's important to note there are a number of different trails in WyCo Lake Park. The "Bridle Trail" is a 9+ mile continuous loop around the entire lake. This trail is very rutted in places, subject to serious mud, relatively hilly and poorly marked. I've found this to be a good training trail for tougher terrain. I'm only giving it 3 stars because of the poor marking and need of maintenance.

The mountain biking trails on the northeast side are better maintained and marked.

Tomahawk Creek Trail

A perfect trail for a beginner cyclist, like me. Lots of water fowl, pleasant fellow trail-users, and not too many hills. The only minor negative is that the pavement is in rough shape in many places. Otherwise, I would recommend to just about anyone.
