This highpoint has an unobstructed view in all directions and can be a bit windy although you'll never know you are standing on anything but a big flat field. Kansas is known as the Sunflower State and locals have made sure the highpoint looks like one. Take some time to hang out and sign the register and look at what others have written. Total time from the state capital is around 6 hours with a distance of 360 miles. After the long drive you will be standing at 4,039 feet, the highpoint of Kansas, staring at a giant metal sunflower.

Literally in the middle of a pasture but a pretty place to watch the sunset.
