    I rode the south leg witch is a paved path. Quite nice with the unsurpassed and scenery. Just not into the paved path thing especially in a bussy city.might have been better with some friends.

    Found myself in the Kansas City area this weekend, unable to ride some trails as planned because of two days of rain. I was glad to have the Streamway available as a backup. Although a greenway trail instead of singletrack, it provided an interesting and scenic way to get a ride in despite the wet conditions in other places.

    This trail is not singletrack. It is a paved rec trail - but it's a great trail.

    Not a MTB trail. Still a nice ride with the family. Plenty of stop offs at little playgrounds for little kids and some port-a-potties along the way for emergencies. Enjoyable place to ride.

    Not a mountain biking trail at all. Great trail for casual riding and getting a good, long exercise, but can't be labeled MTB

    The Mill Creek Steamway Park trail is not a mountain bike trail per se. It contains about 17 miles of paved multi-use trails. There are seven access points and is in a beautiful park containing multiple sports facilities. The two large loops in the middle of the trail climb away from the main trail and are pretty challenging climbs. The main trail follows Mill Creek from near it's beginning in Oletha to the Kansas River. It ends on this island. This portion of the trail has only moderate hills. Only one short section is near a public roadway and it is isolated from motorized traffic. This short section is near the Northern end of the trail where it is neccesary to cross over a railroad track system on a high bridge. The bridge offers a pretty good climb. The paved trail is closed to horses although there is an equestrian trail in one section of the park. This short section may offer some off-road biking. I didn't see any signs prohibiting bikes but it didn't look like a great single track trail.
