Disc Golf Course

Bad Rock Creek Disc Golf Course is an 18-hole course at Stocksdale Park in Liberty. Following the "Tee It Forward" philosophy, this course was designed for players of all skill levels - beginner, advanced and pro. Through the placement of alternate tee pads and additional baskets, Bad Rock Creek DGC combines three courses - red, blue and gold - into one 18-hole layout. Course map (PDF).

Course Guide

  • Red Course: Use short tee pads marked with red paint (for holes in which they occur) to the blue baskets.
  • Blue Course: 

    Use long tee pads (unpainted) to the blue baskets. Designed for experienced and advanced players.
  • Gold Course: Use long tee pads to the 9 gold baskets (for holes in which they occur). Championship layout designed for advanced and pro play with greater length, obstacles and hazards.

Liberty Parks and Recreation works cooperatively with the KC Flying Disc Club on course maintenance, enhancement, and promotion. The Club holds a weekly tournament at the course one evening a week in the spring through fall.

Hiking and Biking Trails

Liberty's multi-use trail system covers more than 10 miles of trails through parks and greenways across the city. Trails range from less than 1/4 mile to 2 1/4 miles. Many of the trails connect with neighborhood sidewalks and can offer walkers, bikers, and runners miles of opportunities for recreation and fitness. Rollerblading is welcome on all asphalt trails, although Cates Creek and the north trail at Westboro-Canterbury offer the best surfaces. 

Mountain Bike Trails

Mountain bike enthusiasts will find one of the region's most extensive single-track trail systems at Stocksdale Park and adjacent Walnut Woods Conservation Area. An easier trail loops around a grassy area while 5.5 miles of trail winds through the woods of the park and conservation area.  Trails Map»
