Mountain Biking ESU Trail

****   Add a review
#24 of 91 mountain bike trails in Kansas
#4,099 in the world

This trail has some nice open riding, BMX style, and technical challengs. You start off by the bouble gate. You can go one of two ways here. I like to take the trail to the right. You will follow a old road be fore entering the woods along the river. As you ride this trail you will come across a high bank turn, some jumps, sharp turns, and the gard rail bridge. The trail takes you to the other side of HWY99 to a nice leg of the trail. You will wind around and end up back at HWY99. The trail will take you back to the main side. Take the trail to the right. This part of the trail runs along HWY99 and has some Technical challenges. You will come to another single gate. Take the trail to the left. This leeds you to the center of the trail, where big slabs of concrete were dumped. You will hit some BMX style trail and wind through the concrete forest. There are some nice technical challenges along this part of the trail. Now you will head back to the woods. Along this part of the trail there are alot of technical turns, climbs, and descents. You will wind aound a bit before getting back to the second gate. Now at the second gate take the trail to the left. This will take you through the open field and back to the beginning. There is another leg just behind the ball diamond. Follow the road along the river it will lead you right to the trail. This is a nice fast short trail. The High Gear Cyclery team does a great job maintaining this trail.

Getting there
Just south of I35 on Hwy99 Is Highland St. It runs behind the collage along I35. A few hundred yards you will see a gravel parking lot to the left. Just past that you will see a tunnel that takes you under I35. Go through the tunnel and you will see to the left a big double gate and a fenced in storage aera. This is where the trail begins.
