Sure. It would suck to have a ride waiting for you in Herington.

The trail between in Council Grove and Allen is really nice. Goes through some old railroad cuts and past the site of the 2012 Symphony in the Flint Hills. Also, there is not much shade on the trail after about 10am during the summer. I was there with a buddy two years ago and didn't have enough water or snacks. Started to get cramps about 8 miles from the end of the ride. Would get off the bike to walk and felt like I was going to black out. I was pretty messed up by the time I got back to the trailhead. Sounds like you are experienced / conditioned enough to not have stuff like that happen.  Since that ride, I've discovered that you can get water at the library or the meat locker in Allen. Good salty snacks to be had at the locker plant in Allen
