Built on the rail bed of the old Leavenworth, Lawrence and Fort Gibson Railroad, the Prairie Spirit trail offers easy grades for hikers and bikers alike. We'll meet at the Ottawa Deport Trailhead and ride to Princeton and back (18 miles round trip). Ottawa is about 50 miles south of Kansas City. This is a moderately easy ride and no one will be left behind but please come prepared to ride the entire distance and bring adequate water and/or snacks. The trail is paved through the city of Ottawa but is crushed limestone in the countryside so it is best suited for hybrid bikes or road bikes with wider tires. A $3 Sierra Club donation is requested and there is a $3.50 day use fee for the trail (self pay at the depot).
