    Leavenworth to Smithville???

    I'm planning to visit my cousin in Leavenworth and would like those who know to kindly review this route. I don't know how busy some of this area would be. I'm a country hick and don't ride a lot in urban areas. I don't know whether this counts or not. I do the touring with a BOB and am used to the road travel so that's not the issue.

    My cousin may be riding this too and she's new to riding!

    Any input would be appreciated.

    I live in KC, but I'm not familiar with that route.

    It is an MTB site, but you may try posting over at Earthriders.

    We have some guys that live out that way and may be able to comment.

    I have been in that area quite a bit but don't know the specific roads... drivers will not be used to bikes though and it is fairly hilly. If you don't mind a little drive, the Prairie Spirit Trail is in that area and looks attractive though I haven't ridden i yet.

    I live in KC as well. I would think that as long as you stay off the Interstate, that you should be fine on the route that you show there.
