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.

Nice when you were in the woods but had to walk through corn fields. Looking for more primitive I guess

It's a good 6 mile hike, but has two different cut through trails so you can make it a shorter hike. Has a wide variety of scenery and some amazing views, nice trail, easy to follow and some of wildlife. The back half of the trail doesn't seem to be completed yet but easy walking or running. There are mild hills, some have steps for easier walking. There is new construction at the beginning, there are a couple new bridges. The only downside was there was a lot of people and you can't bring dogs on the trail.

Nice trail, easy most of the time but has an initial hill that got me a bit winded. Lotta wind which made it quite chilly, just be prepared and it's a good hike.

Waterfall Pond Trail

Hiked this one right after stopping by the park office. Waterfall was off at the entrance, I didn't read the description and was expecting a waterfall on the trail. Path was well cleared, not much in the way of elevation gain but still a nice quick hike.
