Overview

Kessler Park is an urban park located in northeast Kansas City. It's about 1 mile from downtown KCMO and is situated along the top of one of the bluffs overlooking the Missouri River.

Local Info

The Kessler Park Trails drop to Cliff Drive (some people refer to the trails as the Cliff Dr. trails), and you have to use the road to get to the Indian Mound Trail. We are currently building this system out and this will eventually be singletrack all the way to Indian Mound. It continues to be a work in progress, but we are finally to a point where you can get roughly a 10-mile ride, out-and-back. Eventually, there will be a lower line and several smaller loops. There is also a one-way downhill trail, a pump track, and some dirt jumps that are in the design and approval phase.

If I had realized someone left a Big Gulp there when I took this, I would have picked it up!  Never noticed that until just now, haha!
