Explore KC

Explore KC and its partner programs at MARC are
proud to offer the Regional Trails and Bikeways Map, a detailed resource that exhibits bike routes, pedestrian trails, shared-use routes, safety tips and much more. Limited hard copies of the map may be available at regional county and city community centers and at MARC's front desk.

Since 2002, Explore KC has been a regional resource that promotes local trips by foot and bicycle. Over the years, Explore KC and MARC have collaborated with a number of local partners on a variety of community-based events. This year, the Explore KC program is continuing its work to encourage more of our citizens to bike and walk to make the most of the region’s growing network of trails, parks and other resources. The program encourages safety, as well as the health benefits of physical activity and increased exercise. Its ultimate goal is to help people improve their personal well-being through active transportation.
