Walktober 2022

Walk, ride or run a different KC Parks or Jackson County trail the first four Sundays in October!

Walktober 2022 kicks-off on the Westside segment of the Riverfront Heritage Trail, then travels to the rugged terrain of Cave Springs, next to MLK Park and the Brush Creek Trail, and concludes out east on the Little Blue Trace! All four events also include Plein Air Quick Paint Contests with artists painting live on-site. 

Dogs on leashes are welcome. All events are free and open to the public but we do ask that you pre-register. REGISTRATION IS OPEN>>

Commemorative Walktober buttons, designed by artist Liz Vargas, for the first 200 participants at each location. Attend all four events and collect all four designs!

New this year! Earn a free #Walktober patch at each event. Just post a photo on social media of yourself at the park/trail, and tag KC Parks, Jackson County, and Take A Hike, KC
