Coronado Heights is said to be the place where Spanish explorer Francisco Vasquez de Coronado stopped to return to Mexico on his expedition to find cities of gold. A small stone castle sits atop the hill at Coronado Heights Park. It was built under a Works Progress Administration (WPA) project in the 1930s, marking the spot where Coronado is said to have stopped and decide to turn around. Trails at the base of the hill vary from prairie to forest to rocks and keep the trail interesting. There are also stone-encircled park benches to enjoy lunch or sit and watch the sunset.

Pretty neat place to visit. I wish people took care of their own messes better, like one should respect nature and the other people who visit.

Park staff should clean better.

Take bug spray. Neat trails for walking or mountain bikes.

Nice trail, kinda confusing at times, but just head to the top, castles at the top, too quick of a hike, but excellent place for a picnic or date, you get a good view from up top, many picnic tables or. can eat inside the castle.......I ❤KansaS

This is a fun trip to a castle. Short trail but worth going once. I'm only giving it 3 stars because of lack of parking at the bottom of the hill. I actually parked in a cementary so that I could hike up the hill to the castle. It would probably be a better family outing as you can drive up to the castle and picnic.

Mostly bare earth single track with some more technical rocky sections. Only about 4 miles of trails total but a gem for Central Kansas none the less.
