The Prairie Spirit Rail-Trail extends fifty-nine miles between Ottawa and Humboldt, Kansas along the route of the old Leavenworth, Lawrence and Fort Gibson Railroad (later AT&SF).

Welda, Kansas is one of the connecting towns along the trail. 

There's a $3.50 fee to use the trail (honor system for payments).  I gather that the system relies heavily on volunteers.  They've done a really good  job; thanks, guys.


The surface is crushed rock, which is ideal for the fat knobby tire on the unicycle.  Being an old rail bed, of course it's going to be level.


I rode north from Welda, and then turned around and rode back.



It was just about a perfect day for riding.
