Navigate the waters in Kansas while enjoying the serenity and challenge of a river trail. Our river trails are perfect for enjoying kayaking, hiking, and even camping! Take a look at our most sought after river trails below!
Also known as the "Kaw," this river runs east-west from the Kansas City Metro Area to the west side of the state.
There are several public access boat ramps along the Kansas River. Look for signs along the road with the National Water Trail logo to find access points.
Check the water levels and weather before you reach the water. Beginning paddlers should not be on the river when the water flow is above 5,000 cubic feet per second. The weather in Kansas can change quickly. Be aware of forecasts calling for high winds or storms. It is also a good idea to let a family member or friend know about your trip – where you plan to paddle and when you plan to return home.
