This trail is a very nice alternative to Landahl Park for those who live in the Northland and donít want to travel to Blue Springs for a decent ride. The trail was originally cut by motor cross riders and is very flat and fast with a lot of tight turns and switchbacks. Throughout the trail, there are many ditch crossings and log jumps. Few people know about this trail so during the summer months, in some places, the weeds encroach upon the trail. I have been riding the trail for about a year and have yet to explore all of it. (Donít assume you are at the end of the trail when you come to the washed-out bridge, follow the trail under the bridge, this is where a majority of the trails are). Be sure to observe the No Trespassing signs around the archery range. The range is clearly marked and is used frequently on the weekends. The trails leading into the archery range are tempting but this portion is private property!! One more quick note. There is a sign where the gravel begins that says "Road Closed". However, this sign merely indicates the road is closed to through traffic and is no longer maintained by city or county maintenance crews. (As I stated earlier, the road is very rough in places).
How to get there:
From Liberty head south on 291 to Skyline DR (Just past where the R.R. tracks go over 291). Turn right on Skyline Dr then take an immediate right on to Birmingham. Follow Birmingham until it turns to gravel. You can either park where the gravel begins or continue driving to the trailhead but the road gets fairly rough in places. Continue on the gravel for about 2.5 miles. After the 90 degree turn to the right. Start watching for the entrance to the single track on the left side of the road.
Trail is occasionally used by motorcycles and ATVís.
