“A pleasant connection of gravel trail sections by the Smoky Hill River and around Salina.”— Nick Wilder
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.
Continue north along the outskirts of town, enjoying the open sky views with many parks and additional parking areas along the way. At just over five miles, you'll arrive at Indian Rock Park, which is a great place to explore. Use the Salina Connector to continue onto the Salina Levee Trails, Northeast section along the river.
After 7.5 miles, cross the railroad tracks and Old Hwy 40 onto the final section. Salina Levee Trail, North bends around for close to four miles of path before ending at W North Street. You can take any number of streets back to the starting point and a direct route would be to continue east on W North Street until it hits N Ohio St, which connects to the south to E Schilling Rd.
