A mowed trail through a hay field and short wooded areas with no developed tread.

Andy Cramb

Overview

This is a state park, so you'll need a vehicle sticker to park inside. Otherwise, you can ride your bike in for free.
Family Friendly: A good beginner's ride to build strength and endurance for more challenging trails. The resistance of no tread might be frustrating to kids, but overall it's a flat beginner's ride.
Dogs: Leashed

Description

This trail is like Satchel Creek Cove Trail and Boulder Bluff Trail, mowed paths through hay fields with no tread. This is a challenging ride if you tack on all the other trails along with it, or ride this one a few times in a row. Heck, maybe you'll help build the tread, and I won't have to work with the lake managers to accomplish this!

You're sure to scare up deer, turkey, quail and other typical Kansas game as this trail gets little use. I didn't see a bit of horse poo on this one either. There's a permanent deer blind up for viewing wildlife...I posted a pic of it, but didn't go inside.
