Prairie Sunset Trail

The Prairie Sunset Trail is a public trail for walking, jogging and bicycling borne out of the Rails to Trails initiative. The trail spans 15 miles from Garden Plain through Goddard and continues to S. Hoover, Rd in Wichita. Our goal is a recreational trail for all ages to enjoy and a platform for children to learn about the wonders of Kansas outdoors!

Monthly Meeting

May 12 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

To exercise caution and health and to prevent the spread of COVID-19, our monthly meetings have been cancelled. Many of our volunteers are over 60 and we want to be proactive! We will communicate by FB or e-mail as our trail work continues.

As for workday, we encourage all to pick a day and go work on the trail: cut vines and branches within 6 feet of the trail, pick up trash now before overgrowth hides it, use the trail, exercise and have fun! Our work continues, thank you for your understanding!
