“A great, urban singletrack about one mile from downtown Kansas City, MO.”— Dustin Urban
Start the ride on Lozier's Lane. It has some nice ledges, one really tough rock section, a wooden drop, and some nice ribbon-like singletrack. There is some parking on the street right by the trail entrance. There's also a parking lot up the street a block or so.
From Lozier's Lane, transition onto Cliff Top Trail which runs along Cliff Drive before turning south and connecting to Disc Chucker which is a flat, straight trail connecting to Foam Pit. From here, hop on Chestnut Bridge to cross the road and connect to the east side Kessler Park Trail.
Kessler Park Trail is fun either way and is mostly all about the flow. There are a few jumps built in, especially at the east end. Right now it drops down to Cliff Drive so you can link it to Indian Mound Trail but eventually it will go all the way there by itself. On the west end, it can be linked to the Big Grin Gooseneck, The Wilderness , or Upper West Side. This part doesn't have much rock but it's super fast and the views of the Mighty MO are great. From the end of Kessler Park Trail, turn around and head back the way you came.
