Trail Description
About this trail
This wooded trail system consists of three loops with a total distance of 1.8 miles. Each loop has twists, turns, and technical hazards that will challenge riders of all levels. Air Cap is an official city park owned by the City of Wichita and located north of, and separate from, Pawnee Prairie Park. Helmets are required at all times. Even though this is a MTB trail, watch for walkers and runners on the trail.

The North loop is a beginner level trail that toys with the sides of an abandoned railroad bed with fun, but small climbs and descents.
The West loop is an intermediate level trail that is mostly flat with a few short climbs and descents near the railroad bed. It has good flow through the trees and a few rock and log obstacles.

The East loop is an Advanced level trail that is mostly a rock garden, which in Wichita means old piles of concrete and asphalt debris. However, this trail will challenge you and get your heart pumping with it's many short steep climbs and rocky terrain. The trail is good practice for us flat-landers to build confidence, technique and prepare for rockier trails in other areas of the state and nation.

String all three of these trails together for a fun and varied ride.

Riders are warned that Pawnee Prairie Park (south of Air Cap) is closed to bikes and riding there is punishable by law.

Review: Good use of limited available space and terrain. You're never going to go real fast as the trail is constantly doubling back on itself, but it's well designed for what it is. There are some nice berms and even a couple small air opportunities.

Review: I really enjoy riding this trail. The fact that it has 3 different loops is awesome for someone like me who is still new to mountain biking. The East loop is the most difficult but it's not crazy so it's still doable for me.

Review: I give it a 5 because it is in a city. I ride when I can. There's fast sections North loop and West loop. The east loop is not for the beginner. You can connect all three and put some miles in.

Review: KSS has done some good work. The trail is clean and clearly marked. It's a great place for us new guys to hone some basic skills. I'm sure it's a great spot to put a few laps in for a quick workout for those who've already mastered MTB.

A fun little ride and well worth the 40 minutes to get there.

Review: First time on the trail. Rode north loop and west loop several times. Great trail for building confidence. I only wish this trail was longer, but a great trail nonetheless.

Review: It's short and quick...good for learning technical cadence. As my first time on these trails, it was a bit confusing. There's a lot in a small area. Just go. Little mucky in some areas though.
