Shawnee Mission Faces: Pete Barth, trail builder and mountain biker

A brand new soft-surface trail for mountain biking and hiking is now open in Cedar Niles Park in Olathe, thanks to the work of volunteers like Pete Barth.

A volunteer for more than 20 years with Urban Trail Co., Barth helps build trails around the Kansas City metro area. They’ve been working on the initial loop in Cedar Niles Park for the past two years and finally opened it a few days ago. Click here to learn about the status and conditions of trails in the metro.
