Little Blue Trace

Little Blue Trace

About the Park

The Park is located on 1,856 acres and borders the Little Blue River from Longview Lake north to Blue Mills Road.

In 1985, Jackson County Parks + Rec completed the purchase of the Little Blue Trace Nature Preserve.


An 11-mile hiking and bicycling trail highlights the park, which also includes - along this trail system - 4 shelters, 30 picnic tables and a softball field. The trail currently starts at Blue Mills Road and extends 11 miles to I-70. It will ultimately extend to Longview Lake.
