Some Mud - Majority of the trail is dry but where there is mud it is quite sloppy. History

Getting forecast...

A combination of mostly flat single and doubletrack.

Features -none-

Family Friendly This is a great section to introduce beginners to singletrack, but is still great for experienced riders

Do not ride when muddy. The lake manager regularly posts conditions if muddy on here and on Facebook.

Tall grass is burned in the winter, avoid riding those days. KSS will try to make users aware of these times.

$7 day use, $50 yearly pass. No horses or motorized vehicles. Bikes not allowed on the lake dam.

Overview

This trail is a fantastic addition to the south side trails that have been at Santa Fe Lake for 25 years! The combination of dirt access road and singletrack gives an opportunity for a breather between the twisting and turning in each wooded section. Due to camping areas and other lake restrictions, we built all the singletrack we could, but hopefully new trail opportunities will present themselves in the future!

Need to Know

$7 day use fee, $50 Season Pass based on the calendar year.

Description

This side of the creek can be accessed from the north side parking lot or by using the low water bridge. The north side is a combination of three pieces of singletrack that are connected by access roads. It's a nice mix of flowing trail that has very few obstacles; it's great for beginners and experienced riders alike.

A sweet find so close to Wichita. My in-laws, who live in Andover, had never even heard of the lake or knew of any trails there. Nothing challenging, but a great way to get a few miles in on some single track. Mar 30, 2018
