Kansas Trail News: October 10, 2011

Kansas Trail News for October 10, 2011 from Sunflower Rail-Trails Conservancy:

Kaw River State Park In Topeka

The Kaw River State Park in Topeka is now one year old. It is the only urban state park and though it is relatively small at 76 acres, it provides a near-wilderness experience. The park is located just west of Cedar Crest, the governor’s mansion. The Kansas Trails Council has built a wonderful trail network for hiking and mountain biking along side a steep oak-hickory forest hillside. A boat ramp allows boaters to access the Kaw River. For more information, check out the brochure.
