A fast and flowy beginner-friendly trail at Shawnee Mission Park.

Features -none-

These are multi-use trails so be mindful of hikers & runners. Horses and motorized vehicles are not allowed.

Entrances are gated. The trails are closed during wet conditions.

Description

This trail began as a beginner loop, fast and flowy with very few obstacles. Over time the rocks and roots have found their way to the surface creating a little more challenging ride than what can be classified as "beginner". It is still considered the most beginner-friendly trail of the three at Shawnee Mission Park.

Rode the orange loop over yellow loop. Little bit of mud but not too much. Great conditions and good route for a nice afternoon ride. 5.1mi

Great ride for a couple of novices. Some technical spots but nothing unbearable on the orange loop. Some low spots still soggy from all the moisture. 2mi — 1h 30m
