About this Exploration:
The Doodlebug Walking Trail was built in 2009 by the Valley Falls Recreation Committee with a grant from the Sunflower Foundation. The trail is 3,234 feet of flat, gravel surface.
The name of the Trail came from the gas-electric motorcars, nicknamed Doodlebugs, which replaced the locomotives.The Doodlebug ran daily from Valley Falls to Topeka. Local train service was discontinued in 1958.
