Runner Notes

Great trail run as it is mostly free of debris. The northern section has some wash out where it provide semi-difficult footing for about three tenths of a mile.

Description

Follow the pioneer road "Rocky Road to Dublin" in this two mile loop trail through beautiful forests. Open to horses, bikes, and pedestrians this trail is close and fun for all.

Escape into the woods and look for birds and other animals in the forest. This trail is community maintained (annual mowing) and is about 6-8 feet wide in most places. It is easy for two to three to run side by side.

Only wild forest on Fort Leavenworth.  A great feeling to get into the woods so close to home.
