Krug Park

Average Rating:    (3.91 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 11

Numerous interconnecting loops that feature some elevation change, a couple of log crossings, rooted steep sections and a creek crossing complete with waterfall. This trail is impossible to navigate and make any distance on without someone that knows their way--I'm still trying to figure it out. A race is hosted here every year, but it isn't clear what course they use to navigate through the park and get some distance. I'm posting it since it wasn't here and I'd been driving to Omaha or KC to ride, though I still don't know my way around Krug. Reviewers please!

Summary:
Great trail! Coming up from Wichita to some terrain is fantastic - 6.35mi of good climbs, solid down hill, and sharp turns. There were no pink flags marking the trail (see most recent 2013 review), but if you hit each intersection and follow the trail straight across you'll be fine. Enjoy the ride!

Recommended Route:
One route/direction only

Summary:
Wow. this trail was amazing and not just for the beginner. I finished ranching delux and woodchuck at Swope park this morning at 10am and it was awesome rocky technical bouncy and everything else I was looking. Thought I would end my day with a nice easy ride with my wife and ended up amazed at the downhill hair pin turns,jumps tight through ways with the beautiful cedars trees in a section called pine tree forest which I thought to be ironic since there were not any pine trees. Clean trail great bridge crossings and jumps, banks built right and overall just an amazing ride that was more than worth the drive for this 6.35 trail that feels like so much more.

MAKE THE DRIVE AND RIDE THIS TRAIL AND YOU WON'T BE AMAZED. WHATCH CLOSE FOR MARKERS( PINK FLAGS )

Recommended Route:
IN AND OUT FOLLOW THE ENTIRE TRAIL

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Shawnee mission park trail. And Swope park are both great. Swope is definitely the technical of all in this area to me.

Summary:
This Trail is AWESOME and is now easily located, Thanks to the guys from Team Horizon Cycling! A new trail head placed at the entrance keeps new visitors from wandering the park in search of the starting point. Trail markers have been placed throughout the trail to make sure that riders new to Krug are able to stay on course with little chance of getting lost or side tracked. And a special Thanks to the guys that bust their butts like crazy, keeping the trail in tip top shape! It's a never ending job that recieves little praise for the massive effort. Those guys know who they are, and are the reason Krug is so amazing!

Summary:
I rode this trail on 6/24/2011 and was quite impressed. I do not get out on single tracks much because where I live is as flat as a pancake. I have ridden trails in Crested Butte, Colorado (Upper Loop, 401, Dead Man's Gulch) and found this one to be quite good for the Midwest.

The trail is broken into segments and emptied out a few times on grassy hills at the beginning, but after this there was some great single track. Kudos to the club maintaining this trail. The dirt was hard packed and fallen trees had been cut away. The trail winds through trees and has some great sustained downhills with fairly easy climbs. I did not run the entire trail because it was getting dark, but I had a blast. If you are passing through it is worth the stop.

The only thing I saw as a potential issue was broken beer bottle glass here and there.

Recommended Route:
Enter the park. Stay right and you will climb up a winding road. At the top is a large parking lot running North and South. Park on the North end. The trail head is not well marked but is found Northeast of the parking lot along the tree line. The location is really convenient and with the trail head starting at the high point in this park, the beginning starts with a short downhill. When this short segment ends, cross the grassy hill to the next trail. There is a slight wear path worn that will guide you to the next segment. The next segment is short and switches back. You then have to go up the hill slightly where it connects to the next segment (which is a lot of fun).

Summary:
This trail has been re-routed in the past year and is by far one of my favorite in the area. Smooth and fast singletrack with a little climbing. I ride it both ways on a singlespeed, so hills are defiantly manageable. New route takes out some of the old trails that were washed out and it’s a connected loop without the intersecting trails, so you should be able to navigate the route without much problem. CPU puts it at about 6.75 mi.

Recommended Route:
Park at the first parking lot on top of the park. The trail loop starts and ends near the road 25 yards from the parking lot. You can go either way, but the main route is starting on the trial head on the left. DO not start where you used to 5-10 years ago….. Need help or someone to show you the trail.. www.stjmtb.blogspot.com

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Within riding distance there are Girl scout camp, Brownie, Corby South and Corby North Trails.
