With the ribbon-cutting of the Lehigh Portland Trails, Allen County has now added over 20 miles of new trails in the last decade, adding to its growing reputation as the ‘King of Trails‘.
The trail network — the Prairie Spirit Trail, the Southwind Rail Trail, the Missouri Pacific Recreational Trail, the Centennial Trail, and now the Lehigh Portland Trails — is not only an important recreational and transportation resource for residents, but positions Allen County as one of the top trail destinations in Kansas. Our unique mix of trails, and a dazzling diversity of terrain and natural environments, makes Allen County an increasingly popular choice for people to visit, and a compelling destination for new businesses and residents who want to live and work in an active and health-conscious community.
Trail in a Box
And there may be more trails on the horizon. The Kansas Trails Council has donated a ‘Trail in a Box‘ to Thrive Allen County. The trailer, outfitted with all the tools and equipment needed to construct and maintain natural-surface trails, will remain in Allen County, and will also be available for other trail projects in Southeast Kansas. “Just Add Volunteers”!
