Joining people and facilities together is the main theme of Southern Platte Pass. The Pass is a great way to navigate the busy city streets without the use of a car. Southern Platte Pass is part of the MetroGreen and Northland Trails Vision Plan.
The trail runs through a densely populated area of the county and is easily accessible. The trail connects two cities, three schools and the Platte County Community Center South. Expansion has been completed to include: to the west from K Highway to Brush Creek. The trail begins in Parkville at K Highway and travels east along the south side of 45 Highway to the N Gower trailhead, where it connects with Line Creek Trail. Along the north side of 45 Highway, the trail runs from Cosby Ave to 9 Highway. For information, please call Kansas City Parks at 816-513-7500 or City of Parkville at 816-741-7676.
