Elk River Trail – Elk City Kansas

My third trip on the Elk River Trail (along Elk City Lake and the Elk River near Independence KS) but my first time hiking the whole 15-mile length.  Previously, I had done only the eastern 9.5 mile section.  The weather was sunny and cloudless with overnight lows of 30 and 21.

The western section has a little different character but is worth seeing.  I still think this is probably the most scenic hiking trail in Kansas.
