It's like Miller's Meadow and Fall River had a baby.

Description

The yellow loop offers more flowing singletrack and two backcountry camping sites (only one is marked)! The rocks get more intense as you travel north from the blue loop for a little while and then they taper off. The further North you travel, the fewer rocks you encounter until finally you're crossing over to the East side of the cove and you spend some time riding field trails. There is another short opportunity to ride more rock gardens as the trail heads back towards the lake front and then it hands off to the red loop.


The trees are well marked with yellow paint. Use the map or follow the yellow painted on the trees.

This is a Kansas State Park, there is a daily parking fee and overnight camping fee.

Entrance back into the woods.

"Back-country camping area"  No fires!!  There's supposed to be three more of these around this trail, but I think one was destroyed summer 2015 in a flood and not sure if the other was mowed that summer.

Lots of grass trails on the East side...your other option is rocks in the wooded areas.

The line on this rocky area is actually quite good; trust your suspension!

Th trail isn't real defined in here, look for yellow markings on the trees.

Once again, look for those yellow markings on the trail to know where you're going.
