Good place to run, albeit parts of the trail are not safe for women running alone and the constant intersections can make your run feel a little choppy sometimes.

Although this is a great trail through KC's Brookside Neighborhood and Waldo....note it is 6.5 miles in total and is totally gravel and loose sand. I was surprised and not ready for gravel in the city, I would have brought a different bike.

I lived for over 3o yrs a block from the Old Trolley Trail. It is a great place to run, walk, or just sit and enjoy the beautiful neighborhood. Everyone in the area uses it and it is very safe and family friendly. You can walk to area restaurants and shops using the trail.

Somewhere between suburban and urban, this trail wanders past historic and charming homes and through shopping districts and restaurants. Its a gravel surface with plenty of traffic, but watch out for vehicles crossing the trail. Bring some company.

Surface is wonderful for running. Crushed limestone. Great for running out of the way of cars but not completely secluded. It is 6.5 miles one way, so you can run it out and back and get in a half marathon! Close to so many things, you can hop on and off it many places for many things. A must for... More
