Fishermen frequently catch large catfish at this location on the trail.


 Bridges are a consistent theme along the Wichita River Trails. This railroad bridge crosses the river near Scott Street. It is the oldest functional railroad bridge in the United States on the Burlington Northern Santa Fe system.

Wia Chitah Statues iii.jpg

The "Wia Chitah" Indian statues can be seen across the river near the site of the original falls. The site can be accessed from the trail by crossing over the river on the old Bridge Street Bridge.

Take a rest or a picnic lunch at the O'Reilly Park gazebo shelter right on the trail.

Even in winter, the trail has beauty. Here a rustic iron bridge on the O'Reilly Williams Walk stands out against the dormant winter vegetation, and the silhouette of the leafless trees against the clear blue sky is picturesque.

View down the Wichita River from the shelter on the trail near River Road.
