Leawood Park/Indian Creek Trail

IMG_5182 What’s better than walking a lovely trail along a gorgeous creek on a beautiful day? Too gooey? I couldn’t help myself. Indian Creek Trail from Leawood City Park east to Wornall Rd. (where one must stop for a restroom break and a bottle of water, at least) and back is a short but nice walk. The views of Indian Creek from the trail, the water birds, and the varied terrain made for a nice walk in September.

A morning snack at SmallCakes in the Mission Farms shopping center can be a follow-up to this walk, or it could be a stop on the walk with a bit of a detour north along Mission Rd. Cupcakes, muffins, and coffee are the fare.IMG_5167


Indian Creek Trail East

20140830_091809 Follow the Indian Creek Trail east of Leawood City Park into Kansas City, MO, and you will be delighted by the foot-friendly path, the variety of wildlife, and the convenient QT at Wornell Road where you can stop to buy a bottle of water or an iced tea and use the clean restroom.

A bridge across the creek on the east side of Leawood Park leads to a new fenced off-lease dog area. Lucky dogs! 20140830_085002
