You could spend a lifetime exploring all the great places in the Sunflower State and still not see all there is to enjoy here, but that doesn’t mean we don’t enjoy trying! One of our favorite ways to explore our great state is by adventuring through the many wonderful trails in Kansas. One of the best is the Gary L. Haller National Recreation Trail at Mill Creek Streamway Park near Shawnee. This 13.4-mile trek is slightly longer than your typical walk in the park, but the views are amazing, and you’re likely to catch a glimpse of some wildlife while you’re out and about.

For more information about this great trail in Kansas, including maps to the trailheads, check out American Trails.
