The Meadowlark Trail passes through gentle hills and creek valleys in the 12.6 miles between Lindsborg and McPherson on the old Union Pacific Railroad railbed. It crosses eleven bridges and, at one point, follows the east bank of the Smoky Hill River. Both trails travel through beautiful county – geologically rich area with several different types of soil and an abundance of wildlife.
