This path offers an escape from the highways that make up Great Bend's main roads. The path travels in all directions and is not protected from wind, so be prepared for a challenge if you're hiking into the wind on a 20 mph day. The path is paved west of Main Street and is gravel east of Main. The section that travels under Main Street is dirt; be aware if you're expecting a completely paved trail. I'm not sure about the underpasses at the two other bridges.
