From Leawood’s Weaver Park, the trail follows Dutch Creek west to Pierce St. A box culvert under Pierce St. provides trail access to the west side of Pierce St. Continuing west, through Foothills Dutch Creek Greenbelts the trail ends at the eastern edge of the Meadows Golf Club.
Eventually the Dutch Creek Regional Trail will be a 6.5 mile east-west trail linking the Columbine Trail on the east and the C470/Centennial Trail on the west.
Construction of this trail started in the early 1980’s with funding assistance from Jefferson County Open Space, GOCO and Land and Water Conservation Funds.

Coal Mine Ave., head north on S. Pierce St. to Weaver Ave. Turn right on Weaver Ave. until it turns into Weaver Dr. Continue east on Weaver Dr. to the trail on the south side of Weaver Dr.
The western terminus is just north of the intersection of Kipling Parkway and West Meadows Drive on the east side of Kipling Parkway. This location is also the eastern edge of the Meadows Golf Club. Access to the western terminus is by foot or bicycle only.
