Bridle Trail


Plan a Day Trip with Your Horse

Enjoy 8+ miles of scenic bridle trails surrounding beautiful Wyandotte County Lake. Each season at the lake offers its own unique riding experience.  Spring time kicks off with trailside flowers and budding trees.  Summer offers views of sailboats, pontoons, and fishermen.  The most breath-taking autumn foliage captures Kansas City’s beauty (don’t forget the camera).  With winter comes a new view of the lake through leafless trees and offers glimpses of the ever-present wild life.  Be sure to look skyward for our resident eagles.

After your ride relax and enjoy a picnic lunch at the tables provided next to the trailer parking area.  Top off your day with a quick stop at the nearby Schlagle Nature Library, (also located at the lake) for fun and informative exhibits highlighting mammals, reptiles, and birds native to the lake area.
