23rd Street - Trail, Pittsburg, Kansas

23rd Street - Trail, Pittsburg, Kansas

DESCRIPTION

Easy riding in beginning, dense greenery. Opens up in the middle. Once it opens up, stay west and south, where there are numerous trails next to creek. Lots of jumps, tight turns. Only one good downhill. Not too far from PSU. Don't get caught deep in there at night, it is too dense to find your way out.

Good for a quick ride, not much trail there at all. Would be nice if they took out all the connectors and made it a flowing trail and it would be much improved. Not very technical either, nothing that requires skill- just drops into gullys and then you come right out.

The park just opened today(7/29/09) and this was my first time riding these trails. Most of the trails are beginner trails, with a few intermediate, and "expert". But nearly all the trails can be ridden. I'm only a beginner and I rode all of the trails today. All of the trails are smooth and all the brush and overgrowth have been cleared out.

The trails that go north and south are flat, smooth and fast. The trails that go east and west are small hills that are a blast to rip down.

Drop in trail head by the rode and ride like crazy.

Well used trail. Recently opened back up to the public, when they finished the overpass. I've rode these trails for the past 8 years and was delighted to see them opened up again. Saturdays after noon is the best time to hook up with a few other riders. The trail is alot of small rolling hills where the trick is to carry your speed down and up the other side. There are a few thorns to watch out for which get worse in the summer months. I can think of only 2 technical areas, but there exits were bulldozed, so its down and walk back up. Good fun trail to ride for an hour or so. I think the outside loop is about 2 miles.

Customer Service

Drop in at 23rd street and ride counterclockwise to avoid collisions. You do get going pretty fast in some sections.

This trail is a lot of fun to spend an hour or so riding. Difficult to find a good loop because of downed trees, but there are plenty of good hills and lots of shade. A couple decent jumping hills in the middle section to change things up. Not a real technical trail, but still a lot of fun. Recommend for anyone wanting to just get out and have fun.

Just rode this one for the first time. When I entered the trail head by the road, I was very dissapointed at how overgrown the place was. Lots of weeds leaving chiggers on your legs as you ride, and a great deal of little thorned plants scratching up my arms and legs. After I rode that to the open area and found the rest of the trail, I had a pretty good time. The trail weaves in and out of the woods with alot of roller-type hills about 10-20 feet tall. Pretty much every climb has a descent before it, so you can keep your speed up and catch some air at the top of most of them. There was another small open area in the middle of the woods that had a BMX jump set up. If they could spend a little time maintaining the trail with a weed-eater and chainsaw, it would be much better, but once you get past the first part of the trail, it's pretty decent.

Dunno yet.

23rd street trails? dead? poppycock! sure they are a little torn up from the bypass being built, but at least 50% of the trail is still good, especially the fun parts. you just need to travel back further to the new trailhead next to the giant "pond." you cant miss it! 23rd street is a riot to ride, especially with a lot of people. lots of ups and downs, fun for any type of rider, even BMXers.

This was a lot of fun when I was a kid, but that has been a while. Yes there were a lot of jumps, and because of that there were often motorcyclists out there that would run a mtb'r over. However, I think the railroad people have put an end to that, but I'm not sure as I no longer live in the area, and haven't been out there for several years. But, it's probably one of the better places to ride in Pitt...
