This is inside a Kansas State Park, so you need a permit for use.

Description

This trail was designed for running but is open to biking too. If you take a right at the trail split, it's a decent run for the first third of the trail. Then it has several areas with many large rocks. There are two large ravines that the trail crosses and instead of building switchbacks, these trails dive right down the side of the hill to the bottom.

The trail is actually very similar to Badger Creek at Fall River's trail.

Trail is covered in limbs and trees that floated in this summer.  It's a good 35 feet down to the water here!

More limbs. Please remember that the state only funds 5 or so people to take care of Toronto and Fall River.  Next time I go out, I'm going to walk some trail with a Mcleod and help clean up.

Needs a reroute, there's no good way to get across this valley here...OK for hiking, bad stuff for biking
