A bit late, but there are 3 major MUPs criscrossing that part of JoCo.
The first runs from the Wyandotte county line sounth, thru Shawnee Mission Park deep into Olathe - about 18 miles.
The other is Indian Creek which runs East West (NE-SW, actually) from around 151st in Olathe up thru Corporate Woods to Stateline. There a Missouri greenway connects and runs 5-6 miles into KC, MO. This part is being extended a bit each year (eventually to link up with the Katy, I think). Around 20-23 miles total. You can actually jump from one to the other at the south end with most of the 2-3 miles being via a dedicated bike lane on street.
Then there is Tomahawk which runs from the Row/Stateline area in Leawood where it connects with Indian Creek, south to 133rd in Olathe. You can jump from here to the south end of Indian Creek via 133rd as well. There is one section where you need to get off and go 2-3 blocks and cross a street to actually connect with IC at Nall.
