Walktober: Riverfront Heritage Trail
October 10 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Walk, ride or run a different trail every Sunday in October! The month of October is ideal for exercising outside ~ the temperatures are cool and the colors are spectacular. Walktober makes the most of this great season by inviting participants on a tour of autumn’s most vibrant landscapes and inspiring everyone to make movement a priority!! Dogs on leashes are welcome. Commemorative Walktober buttons, designed by artist Kevin Worley, for the first 200 participants at each location. Attend all five events and collect all five designs!
The West Bottoms trail segment begins at the top of the bluff near the Lewis & Clark memorial and reaches base via the Bruce Forrester Viaduct. The Trailhead contains two memorials to critical events in the history of the City that took place on that site, namely, the route enslaved people escaping took to reach the Free State of Kansas and first tracks of a frontier railroad that would eventually place Kansas City in the center of commerce.
