Hiking/Biking Trails

As you arrive at the upper level, you will see a wheelchair-accessible 1500-foot-long boardwalk, which allows you to view both the Kansas and Missouri Rivers.

Within the park, canopied trails totaling 600-yards in length are suitable for biking and hiking and include Bird-Woman Trail, Kaw River Trail and the Missouri River trail. These concrete paths take you through the woods, past the Encampment Theater, and out to the park’s point near water’s edge adjacent to the Missouri and Kansas Rivers.

The “Lewis and Clark Heritage Trail” will bring bikers and hikers to Kaw Point from Kansas City, Missouri, via the historic Woodsweather Bridge.The Kaw Point Connector will connect Kaw Point Park with the Riverfront Heritage Trail (http://kcrivertrails.org/).

For more information about cycling in KC See Kansas City Bike Club (http://www.kcbc.org/).

Multiple species of wildlife call these rivers home–bald eagles, blue heron, falcons, ducks and geese, fox, deer, and other critters.

Trails are open from 7am to 10pm daily. The park is patrolled by the Kansas City, Kansas, Police and Sheriff Departments. Special events are permitted through Wyandotte County Unified Government Parks and Recreation.
