Made my first stop here over the weekend. Nice little trail system. Gotta ask though, where the heck does the Farmtastic loop supposed to go? Greg and I rode it CCW twice and each time, after we passed the concrete footings, we got lost spit out on what appeared to be social trails, not well maintained etc. Noticed the green and blue arrow signs but..... I'm confused. :homer:

Tom,
That is exactly what it does....dumps into some old 'scout' trails that were built years ago (a lollipop has been ridden extensively over the last several months if you hang a left past the foundation).

We are currently trying to get the city to approve another chunk of ground that will allow us to build another mile of trail that will complete the Farmtastic loop. Waiting on the city....

I am really impressed with what the trail gurus was able to pack into only 4 miles of total trail - I really enjoyed the trail system (my first time riding it as well) - Farmtastic was my favorite of the two loops and really had a lot of fun flow. Farmy deserved to have a trail named for him. I enjoyed riding with him a few years ago at Fruita.

It's almost like Neale knows what he's doing. :)

I brag about you guys to everyone I talk trails with all the way over in Colorado and Utah. What you guys can do with so many miles of trails in the KC area is just outstanding and still amazing to see. When I lived in Ogden, UT for 7 months in 2014, they had lots of singletrack there too but there was no "official" organization that does what you guys do here - what trailwork gets done there is basically the bike shops giving a shout out to the locals and whoever showed up did the work.

Kansas City is tremendously blessed to have trail people like what we have here.

We really are truly lucky to have so many talented and dedicated individuals in the KC trail community.
