Technically a horse trail open to bikes and a great workout for all the gravel grinders out there.

Features -none-

This is inside a state park, so you'll need to have a vehicle permit; otherwise, riding into the park is free.

Description

This is technically a horse trail, a mowed path through fields that are put up for hay in late summer. There is no tread which creates a lot of resistance in your ride. I guarantee you'll feel this workout! The main road goes down the middle of the whole trail system, so feel free to bail or make up your own ride of favorite sections!

I didn't find a bit of horse poo on it, so it's under-utilized, but please respect any horse riders you encounter. You'll scare up deer, turkeys, quail, and meadowlarks on these trails. It's a great way to get away from the city.

The trail has several places where the lake or drainage ditches force you out onto the pavement, but you can dive back onto the trail after 100 feet or less.

It's a long ride if you do the whole thing, so be sure to have a couple of water bottles.

The trail parallels the BNSF train line, and there's a train to watch every 15 minutes if that's your thing.

Really nothing but a mowed path. Unless you live in the area and want something different, not worth the trip to El Dorado.

Just visiting Kansas near Wichita and thought I would check it out. One of the pictures is not from this trail and is misleading. I got a little turned around while trying to find a place to park and missed the only single track in the area. That was my mistake. The path is nothing more than mowed grass. Maybe this would be okay if I lived in Wichita and wanted something different for a workout, but it is not worth the drive to El Dorado if you only have limited time and want some dirt. There are some better options closer to Wichita (Santa Fe Lake). Just not what I was looking for today. Mar 30, 2018

I’m sorry, you clearly didn’t read the description. The second sentence says it’s a mowed trail and there’s no tread. MTBProject has collected pictures from the area and lumped then all together. If you zoom in on the trail, you’ll see where the pictures are actually from. This is clearly not a destination for someone from Wyoming, but for kids living/camping in the area. I’m glad you found Santa Fe Lake and Fall River’s North Trail. Mar 31, 2018
