Wyandotte County Lake Park, Kansas City


Directions:: From I-435 (West side of KC Metro), take the Leavenworth Rd exit.  Head east, then take a left at N 91st St (you will see a sign); take a left at West Drive when entering the park.  It's the first big parking lot on the left.  Park at the far end of the lot by the trees.

Trail Information:: The trail starts behind the parking lot.  It's a bridle trail, with single-track sections added by the Kansas City Trail Nerds.  In some areas you have to cross pavement and find it again; look for orange or pink tape markers.  There is a total of 10.35 miles of trails around the lake.  This is an extremely hilly trail (for Kansas).  Only horses and pedestrians are allowed on the trails.  More information: http://www.psychowyco.com/id6.html

Miscellaneous Information:: This is a beautiful park with a decently-sized lake, tall trees, and lots of wildlife.  The rangers are friendly and helpful, but please don't drive over 20 MPH in the park, or you'll be ticketed.
