am so excited about the fact that the biking/walking trail on the south side of Highway 45 was extended all the way to I-435 when they widened the road this winter. This allows you to bike all the way from I- 435 to the Line Creek Trail without ever getting on the road! According to the Platte County Parks & Recreation website, the length of this trail is roughly 6.5 miles, all of it paved and smooth. I use it regularly to bike between my home in Riss Lake to my farm near Thousand Oaks. I can be on the trail for 90% of this ride, which makes me feel so much safer. If you are looking for a new route to add to your repertoire, try this one out.
