Wyandotte County advocates and community leaders are making great strides in opening the community's Kansas River levees for trail development. The Kaw Valley Drainage District recently opened a 1.3 mile section of levee for a test run.
If this trial run goes well, the Unified Government hopes to add amenities, improve access, and ultimately extend the trail up to Kaw Point or further. BikeWalkKC is supporting the efforts of the UG, Mayor Mark Holland, and Healthy Communities Wyandotte to make this trial a success and grow KCK's trail system.
The new trail can be access at South 12th Street and under the Kansas Avenue Bridge.
The new trail in Armourdale provides beautiful views of the Kaw River, including an island frequented in the winter by nesting eagles!
