Coronado Heights

Average Rating:    (4.29 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 7

A small little bump on the plains but home to unique history and bitchin' twin (not identical) downhill runs. Follow the link below to read more about it. 3 mile, figure 8 loop, 60% singletrack totally vertical. Speed increases the difficulty, most can be ridden by beginners but experts will leave smiling as well.

Disclaimer; Ride at your own risk! Please remember mountain bike riding is an inherently dangerous activity. Always ride with caution, use your own judgment as to what is and isn't ride-able for your skill level, wear all appropriate safety equipment and please don't mow down the hikers!

Summary:
This trail is a gem in the middle of flatland. The whole freakin thing is up or down, which turns a 3 mile ride into a challenging workout. The trail is impeccably maintained, there is no gate fee (or gate) and it is not crowded. I had given up hope on finding places to ride when I moved to Kansas, but this trail has saved the day.

Recommended Route:
Start at the top, go to the bottom, go back to the top. Repeat. Rinse.

Summary:
This trail is just under 1.5 hours from Wichita, and it is well worth the drive! The trail is well maintained and located on the side of a hill--making for a good workout. Nothing was extremely technical/impassible, but it wasn't easy either. I didn't see a trailhead, but if you stand at the front door of the castle (I know, cool huh) you'll see a trail leading down to the outhouse. The bike trail is a loop and begins at the outhouse. I would recommend riding the trail counter-clockwise. After you're done, go into Lindsborg and get some Swedish pastries!

Recommended Route:
I-135 to KS-4 (exit 78), south towards Lindsborg. KS-4 has a sign pointing to Coronado Heights Park, go west at Winchester road (follow the sign). After about 3 miles, Winchester will turn into Coronado Heights road, there will be a cemetary on the north side of the road, and you'll take the first right after the cemetary (12th Ave). If all else fails, drive towards the castle.

Summary:
Great trail. My wife and I went and rode it for the first time this evening. We ran out of day light before we got it all done. But we got most of it. We will be going back very soon. Had a blast. Going to try to make this one a regular ride. And we meet a great group of guys from Lindsborg that must ride it all the time.

One of our favorites is the River trail on the east side of Manhattan. Check it out!

Summary:
This is a very nice set of trails. Be careful, as some spots are pretty dangerous because if you crash it will be on rocks. Well maintained. Some parts are a bit technical. Some parts are potentially hazardous to your health. Overall this trail is very nice. Also a great view from the top of the hill.

Recommended Route:
I-35 to Lindsborg. Hwy 4 west to Coronado Heights road. North to the access on dirt road. You can't miss it unless you are blind.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Don't know.

Summary:
I am new to the sport, but for this area it is a great little ride. I can ride this track couple times and I am tired. There are a couple great views and the trails are VERY WELL MAINTAINED.

Recommended Route:
Start at the top of the hill at the flagpost. Work your way around the lip of the hill in a clockwise motion. After you start working downhill you have a couple options. Pick a path & go.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
None.
