Biking and Hiking 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 gravel 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 the kaw Point Park with the Riverfront Heritage Trail (http://kcrivertrails.org/). Plans are underway to connect this bridge with the Katy Trail and will be completed in the summer of 2011.
