Urban Trail Co.

Urban Trail Co. is a memberless organization with a 7-member board and an advisory board of knowledgeable trail builders and trail user community representatives. Trail-building resources are allocated through five volunteer, regional trail directors, who are among Kansas City's most experienced trail builders. The names listed here represent our gratitude for thousands of hours of trail building effort and thoughtful, responsible trail stewardship.
