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 MTB ride. First time on these trails in probably a year. I really enjoy these trails being so close to town.

The Bridle loop can be overgrown in places but can be very beautiful and has a surprising elevation changes. My favorite part of the entire park is the cluster of trails maintained by the Trail Masons Association, there's about 11 miles of trails clustered together and is very well marked and maintained. There are even trail maps with a QR code to download a map to your phone.

Konza Godwin Hill Loop

Excellent views of the beautiful flint hills on well maintained hiking trails. I hike the Konza every month or so with my four year old. He can usually make the entire loop if he paces himself, but sometimes needs to be carried for the last 1/2 mile. If you want a shorter hike, you can cut this hike in half by taking the nature trail loop. This is part of a research area, so please keep on the trails and do not bring your pets.

First time out here, nice area. I only rode some of the many loops out here. Had a couple of flat tires and rolled the bead on my rear tire after a flat. Need to get some new tubes and tires and try it again.

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.
