Features Wildlife

Trail is on a military installation. A military ID or visitor pass will get you on. Visitors station is located at the Sherman Avenue Gate.

Overview

This long trail journeys through mixed forest with two dry creek bed crossings.

Need to Know

Pay attention to trail crossings since this trail uses parts of three other trails. Follow the blue blazes on trees and sign posts.

Description

This is the longest of the trails on Fort Leavenworth. Following the blue blazes, this trail takes the outer perimeter of three other trails. A mix of single trail and broad pioneer roads, this trail crosses two seasonal creek beds where you can view deer and other animals. Decent elevation gain leaves you feeling exercised and rewarded from a nice run.

This is a multi-use trail, so be sure to respect each other and the trail.

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

A section of the outer and upper loops. Needs to be mowed again but even so the trail is well blazed and in good condition to run/hike.
