“An awesome Rails to Trails in Eastern Kansas”— Andy Cramb
Family Friendly The full distance is asking a lot of kids (and maybe your spouse), but small sections would make for a great family ride!
There are a lot of houses and properties that back up to this section of rail to trail and when you get to Osawatomie (south of 347th St), you'll cross several driveways to homes that I didn't exactly like how close the trail was to the homes, especially if you encounter "protective" dogs. Personally, I would bail out off off the trail at 347th and head East into Osawatomie if you need to find food, etc.
I found a gas station, a couple of local diners and two fast food places at the center of Osawatomie and closer to HWY 169 if you need support.
