Hiking Kansas City: Blue River Parkway

“IN EVERY WALK WITH NATURE

ONE RECEIVES FAR MORE THAN HE SEEKS”

-JON MUIR

One of my goals from last year, and moving into this year, is to explore the world that exists in my own town, my backyard, my daily life. Part of this adventure, has been exploring the hiking trails of Kansas City. More often than not, I end up at the Blue River Parkway.

There are several trail routes within the Blue River parkway: The river trail, basement trail, oxbow trail, lydia trail, and more. I have posts on some of these trails individually- follow the links if you are interested. These trails are created and maintained by the community that uses them. Most communication is done through their facebook page! It’s pretty amazing actually.

I never realized how great the hiking trails in KC could actually be. Sure, there’s no mountain view, red rock formations, or ocean coastline. However, there are hills, nature, animals, waters, and a good ole’ hiking experience.

I truly believe this is a MUST DO trail in kansas city.
