Landahl Park is an exciting and expanding trail network in northeast Jackson County. Fifteen miles and growing, this system of interconnecting loops consists almost completely of hard-packed single-track, with a few stretches of double-track. Most paths traverse wooded hillsides, with several open fields scattered throughout the network. There's a trail for riders of all skill levels in Landahl Park. Novices will like the easy grades and smooth trail surfaces in the east part of Landahl. As you work your way west, the trails get tougher, but more scenic and fun, too. The western part of the park is rocky, technical, steep, and suited only for expert riders. This trail is located 2 miles south of Blue Springs.

Fun trail system and easy to find off of I-70. I think we hit most of the system and found it to be very technical in parts and then very mild....the trails on the east side of the park where much easier than those on the west side of the park/river....If you are in KC this is a must ride.....takes about 1 - 2 hours depending on ability to do the whole system....

Great ride, combines both the singletrack experience of the Lawrence River Trails and the technical difficulty of Clinton Lake all in one. Lots of options to ride, plenty of different loops, very easy to very difficult terrain in one ride. Without a doubt it's the best the K.C. area has to offer.
