The definitive guidebook to hiking Kansas City is back—completely updated, expanded and redesigned with a mountain of new photographs to help you hike, explore, and unwind.

In this comprehensive fifth edition, life-long Kansas City hikers William Eddy and Richard Ballentine highlight more than 125 off-the-road hiking and walking trails in and around the Kansas City area.

From popular, flat, paved city park trails to remote, rolling, forested treks—you’ll find that good walks and hikes are close to home no matter which way your compass points you.

This guidebook includes updates to old favorites as well as many new trails sure to be visited again and again. Beginners and seasoned hikers alike can flip a few pages and find a perfect trail no matter the season.

Enjoy the fresh air, the good exercise and the tranquility that can only be found on a trail… See deer, wild turkey, foxes, beaver, and blue birds… Hear the wind rustle through the trees as you hike hardwood forests. Explore prairie grasslands, river valleys, and rugged hills. Walk along lake shores, beside marshes, limestone bluffs and forgotten railroad bridges. End the day with a sunset high atop a lookout point.

Review of Hiking Kansas City:

"Good news regarding the fourth edition of Hiking Kansas City…the book is more attractive, more complete and easier to use…The fourth edition also features something no previous edition had: photographs…the selected photos here help give hikers a better idea of the various landscapes…

Just as welcome as always, are the five information categories that introduce each hiking area: approximate time you’ll need; distance; whether drinking water is available; accessibility options for disabled people; and a trail rating that classifies hikes as easy, moderate, or difficult.

The best thing about the Eddy and Ballentine guide is that one can use it to tailor a hike to the needs of the day: Do you have time to drive out to a picturesque area like Weston Bend State Park or the Lawrence Kansas River Trails? Or do time constraints necessitate finding an urban oasis such as Klein Park/Cave Spring in South Kansas City?"                 -- John Mark Eberhart, Kansas City Star
