Trail Description
About this trail
Trail is well maintained single track that is flowing and fast with reasonable climbs. Only a 3 or 4 moderate technical areas. From the parking area at shelter 9, you can enter and go left or right. Right goes to the older trails (Masons First, Boyscout, etc.) Left takes you to the new sections as of end of 2012. www.trailmasons.org for trail maps.

You can also ride all the way around the lake as well on the horse trails to get more than 20 miles of trail...but these trails are clearly multi-use.

Review: My favorite trails to ride in Kansas City. The trails are marked very well!!! Don't worry about what trail you are riding, because they all are awesome. In my opinion these are the closest to real XC that trails I have been on in KC

Similar Trail: Smithville and the river trail in Lawrence

Review: Great Trail to ride. It is well marked and a flowing Trail. When I wrote it it was a little Sandy / Loma. I Road my Cannondale scalpel with 2.35 Hans Dampf front and a 2.1 racing Ralph in the rear which was a perfect combination. It was an solid intermediate Trail with fast down Hills and intermittent up hills. It has several routes and I rode approximately 5 miles on the white and red route. This is a definite must ride if you're in the area. Ride Hard!

Review: Best trails in KC in my opinion - each side of the dam has very well maintained trails a mix of packed dirt and some moderate rocky technical spots, but nothing un-rideable. If you want the real WyCo experience and up for a 9-10 mile challenge, ride the Bridle trail loop around the lake. It isn't maintained as well as the other trails, but it is fabulous. Several places you have to push, but a great trail not to be overlooked!

Review: This is a nice ride in the woods with great views. Today was my first ride on this trail and I found it to be a nice addition to my normal trails I ride. Do to all the fall leaves the trail was a bit difficult to follow but it is very smooth and has some sections you can get some speed going. My biggest issue is that the trail is poorly marked out, or I could just be spoiled by my normal trials. I would like to go back in the spring when the trail is cleared off so I can attack it harder and maybe find some more technical spots. Overall, a great way to spend a few hours in the woods looking at nature( the deer was everywhere) and for the beginner rider it will give you a few challenges. I hope that they will mark the trail better soon to get a better flow, follow Switch Grass format and it will rock!!!!

Review: Awesome local trail. I'm pretty new to the sport and I've found WYCO very accommodating to my novice riding. It's challenged me to become a better rider quick. I recommend the white trail for any beginners out there.

Review: Met a very nice guy which he guides me thru the trails around. It has everything fits into intermediate level. As being first time at this place, it was quite work out but fun!

Review: One of my favorite KC trails. This trail is generally fast and flowy, with some rock and roots mixed in along the way. Oz is also a great addition. Wyco is much less technical than many of the other trails in the area.

Review: This trail always seems to dry out faster than others in our area. Singletrack that rides back and forth up the sides of the terrain.

Similar Trail: Swope Park and Gunn Trail
