Chichaqua Valley Trail

The Chichaqua Valley Trail begins just east of Bondurant on NE 88th Street and extends for 20 miles to the Jasper County town of Baxter at State Street, passing through the small communities of Ira, Mingo and Valeria along the way. This trail is paved from beginning to end, making it popular with rollerbladers as well as cyclists and hikers. The name is derived from a Native American word that early settlers mistook to mean “skunk” but actually referred to the smell of wild onions that grew along the Skunk River, which the trail crosses. Along the trail, one will spot mile markers showing the distance to Kansas City for this former railroad route.
