Redbud Trail

This Okie loved the Redbud!

September, 2022 by dbendick

I rode the trail starting in Andover, heading southeast, then backtracked to go west toward Wichita and again back to where I started at N Andover Road (where my sister lives). Going east of Andover was about 4 miles of packed, manageable gravel and great Heartland rural scenery- complete with cows and wildflowers. Going toward west toward Wichita, the path was very well maintained concrete.

Haysville Hike and Bike Path

Riggs park ok

May, 2022 by john.kf0m

The Riggs Park portion is a nice ride smooth sidewalk that is wide enough for opposing riders to pass. The adjacent side streets around the park also have low traffic that is also easy to ride on. The portion on the North Main Street sidewalk is adjacent to a high traffic street with cars entering and exiting businesses and crossing the sidewalk. The north end of the sidewalk ends abruptly on the North end of a bridge and requires going over a curb to get on to the street. I have not ridden the loops that are east of the N main section. From the Intersection of Grand Street and Meridian there is a nice sidewalk that runs from Grand to 55th street on the East side of Meridian that is also very rideable. IMeridian does have a lot of traffic however.

Do This One

October, 2021 by acewickwire

Started at south end and rode to the north end, then returned. Switched sides of river a couple times. The trail at each end isn’t as nice as the portion of trail at the middle part of the trail at the “Keeper of the Plains” plaza. The plaza area is very nice with a Veterans Memorial park to see in addition to the Keeper. Plenty of walkers and riders on the trail on a nice Saturday afternoon. Recommend this trail.


Prairie Sunset Trail

first gravel trail ride

October, 2021 by john.kf0m

This was our first trail ride and we have ridden two sections with our city commuter type bicycles. Both were nice rides. First section was starting at Hoover Road going west. We found convenient parking at a nearby empty business lot. The trail was an easy smooth ride until we got near maize road where the trail intersects the Air Cap memorial park single track area which was rougher ride and we became completely confused where it comes close to Pawnee Prairie park and lost the trail. We could possibly have taken city streets to continue to Maize road but decided to go back instead. Next time we went out to Goddard KS where there is a very nice city park with convenient parking and rode East. Goddard does a very good job maintaining this section of the trail which was shaded and quiet and more like a ride in the country. We rode 4 miles east and then returned. The gravel was smooth and easy to ride on. However we found out going east on this section is a deceptive gradual down hill slope so the return was more of a struggle going up hill. Hope to return to Goddard again and make it all the way to maize road plus eventually ride west from Goddard on that section. We really enjoyed not having to fight with city traffic on the streets and the related traffic noise. It was a much more relaxing and stress free riding environment.

No real trailhead parking Hoover Dr end of this trail. It follows along the back door of commercial and industrial properties. Not much to see.

Prairie Sunset Trail

Good ride and great food

June, 2020 by bonwin

It was a very windy day, but as this trail runs East - West and the wind was out of the north it was doable. Nice ride with plenty of shade and good rural views. I rode my recumbent with street tires and did okay. Watch out for the big gravel between Maize and Tyler Street(?). Other than that the crushed limestone was fine, but not much pavement so don’t look to hard for it. Limited food service near trail, but two bar/restaurants in Garden Plain. We ate at The Other Place and food was very good. The owners were very accommodating to us, helping to secure our bikes In the patio area. We felt very welcomed there! Extremely friendly along with the other folks we chatted with in Garden Plain. Good ride for lunch from Wichita.

Rode all but really easternmost mile from Garden Plain. About 24 miles or so round trip. Fantastic condition and highly recommend this trail.

Arkansas River Bike Path

Great Bike Path

April, 2020 by phamhieuviet

This is a great Bike Path. Although, I highly recommend to bike during the day as there are a couple areas along the way that are a bit sketch. There are several stops on this journey. I will definitely ride on it, again.

Prairie Sunset Trail

Nice ride

August, 2019 by dwpage75

I rode from Maize rd to Garden Plain on a hybrid bike. The path was well kept with just a couple of larger rocks near garden plain. There are really nice parks in Goddard and just north of the trail end in garden plain. I will definitely ride again with my kids.
