Trails
Overview
Tallgrass Trail
One of the best ways to explore Junction City and Geary County is to get outdoors and walk, bike ride or even horseback ride!  Whatever your pleasure, we have the place that is ideal for those activities.  So bring your families or bring your friends and get outdoors!



Eagle Ridge Trail
8 miles in length, it is the perfect trail for horseback riding, hiking and biking. Located in Milford State Park, this trail offers some of the most scenic and diverse areas that the park has to offer.
Good for all skill levels, the trail offers a number of activity options and is accessible year-round. Dogs are also able to use this trail but must be kept on leash.
 



Tallgrass Trail
Located next to the Milford Nature Center, the 1/2 mile loop or a longer 1 1/2 mile trail takes you through wooded areas, native prairie grass and down past a scenic pond. Don't forget to read the many informational plaques along the way. A great trail for family or group walks and those seeking waterfowl photographs in November and December.




Pipeline Trail
Though only half a mile, this up and down track will make you think you're walking in the Ozarks, as the trail will lead you into a deep ravine, covered by trees.   This trail links campgrounds and acts as a shortcut between areas in Milford State Park.


Riverwalk Trail
A 4.8 mile trail, which takes you along the Republican River, between the outlet tubes of Milford Lake to the Washington St entrance on Fort Riley.  The trail is made of limestone screenings and can be used by walkers, joggers, bikers, and equestrians. This trail becomes the Old River Bluff trail at the outlet park, and then connects with Milford State Park's trail system. All combined this offers enthusiasts 14 continuous miles.  This is an excellent trail for viewing Bald Eagles during the winter months. Be aware, during the winter months, the trail is subject to closure due to high numbers of Bald Eagles in the area.



Crystal Trail
This 2.2-mile trail in Milford State Park passes by an old quarry where small geode rocks can be found. Deer viewing is good along open fields and by food plots. Viewing of bald eagles is excellent from November through March along the water's edge.


Waterfall Trail
A 0.6 mile trail that leads you through woodland and prairie habitats. A man-made waterfall and pond is located at the trail head in Milford State Park.

Wildlife Viewing Tower and Trail
The tower is accessed from a wrap-around staircase, which rises 21' to the top platform. Excellent wildlife viewing is made available with nearby food plots. The best time to visit is near dusk and dawn.

Old River Bluff Trail
A 1 1/4 mile trail, connecting the Riverwalk Trail and the Milford State Park Eagle Ridge Equestrian Trail.
