Description

This trail was designed for hiking but is open to biking too. If you take a right at the trail split, it's a decent ride for the first third of the trail. Then it has several areas with so many large rocks that you have to dismount and walk. There are two large ravines that the trail crosses and instead of building switchbacks, these trails dive right down the side of the hill to the bottom. Kansas Singletrack Society is currently discussing possible improvements over the next several years that will make this a great ride, but for the time being, it may be best to leave this one for hikers.

The view is great, but leave your bike in the car for this one till we get it re-routed.

The trail is actually very similar to Badger Creek at Fall River's trail.

Trail is covered in limbs and trees that floated in this summer.  It's a good 35 feet down to the water here!

More limbs.  Please remember that the state only funds 5 or so people to take care of Toronto and Fall River.  Next time I go out, i'm going to walk some trail with a Mcleod and help clean up.
