Walking, Hiking & Biking Trails

Overland Park is filled with opportunities to immerse yourself in the beauty, excitement and adventure of nature.

The 300-acre Overland Park Arboretum & Botanical Gardens includes nearly five miles of hiking trails that wind through the lush, year-round environmental preserve. The trail can get challenging along the limestone bluffs, but a half-mile asphalt “country road” trail is also available for those who want to enjoy a more leisurely stroll.

Prefer the scenic route? You’ll love the Indian Creek and Tomahawk Creek Hike and Bike Trails, which starts in Kansas City and continues more than 25 miles, through the heart of Overland Park. The asphalt paths are ideal for hiking, biking and skating—and because they’re mostly shaded, the trail is a great recreation option even during the hot summer months.
