      The MacLennan Park Trails are located in northwest Topeka along the hills overlooking the Kansas River. Trailhead access and parking lots may be found on the south side of the park on 6th Street west of Fairlawn Road and on the north side of the park on the west side of the Governor’s Mansion. The park has two types of trails – a wide limestone loop and a series of dirt single track hiking and biking trails.

      Beginning at the north parking lot on the west side of the Governor’s Mansion, the 2 mile limestone path drops into the timber and arcs toward the southwest, then skirts the edge of the prairie grass along 6th Street on the south and Fairlawn Road on the east, then turns to the west along Cedar Crest Drive where it rejoins the parking lot on the west side of the Governor’s Mansion. The limestone path may also be accessed from the south parking lot located on 6th Street just west of Fairlawn Road.

      If you are interested in working on the trails, please check our calendar page for more information. Trail workdays are usually on a Saturday and volunteers meet at the parking lot west of the Governor’s Residence at 9 AM and usually work until around noon. We supply all the tools and equipment needed. Contact the trail coordinator to obtain more information.
