“A pleasant trail by the Smoky Hill River and around Salina.”
— Nick Wilder
This is probably the best run on dirt for several miles. Enjoy it!
This wide, flat, dirt path along the top of the Salina Levee isn't a destination, but if you're in town and want a walk or a run, this is the ticket. You can go quite a few miles with minimal road crossings, pleasant scenery, and an uncrowded smooth surface. Perhaps the most interesting section is that around Indian Rock, just north of Crawford Road.
The trail was completed in 1995 after being awarded a Kansas Department of Transportation grant in 1993. It continues to be extended and is getting quite a bit longer than its original 3.1 miles and nearly circumnavigates the city now!
