Description

This is one section of the Circle Trail system around the city.

The trail is paved and has seating along with pavilions for groups and gatherings.

The trail is an out and back, ending at the bridge for Loop 11 over the Wichita River. The trail has rolling ups and downs with many nice views of the river and surrounding area. This is a multi-use trail: walk, bike, roller-skate, etc.

There is parking at both ends of the trail (at the starting point as soon here) and that the turn around point at Loop 11.

Flora & Fauna

Mesquite, cactus, and grasses will be seen along the trail.

Rabbit, squirrel, and a wide variety of birds are commonly seen along the trail. We have seen bobcat and coyotes, but only rarely.
