Fort Leavenworth Military Reservation – Leavenworth County. Fort Leavenworth Military Reservation is immediately north of Leavenworth in Leavenworth County and has an 18-plus-mile trail system within the confines of Fort Leavenworth Military Reservation. Three trail routes, all designated as National Recreation Trails, have been designed to encompass a variety of historical and natural features found on this 180-year-old base. Trails traverse hilly upland areas to the west and the largest contiguous floodplain forest left along the Missouri River to the northeast. The hilly uplands are comprised of loess, a fine, wind-blown soil that is quick to get muddy in wet weather. Older roads, where vehicle use has caused ruts and erosion, are being stabilized by vegetation. Be aware of these conditions, and avoid areas prone to erosion during wet weather. Trails are in various stages of repair.
