A castle in KS on a hill to watch the sunrise? Yes, please :) I grew up by the flint hills area so seeing the smoky hills and this castle was a good change. The sun rise view was breathtaking. It was a fall morning in the 30s and we were cold so we didn’t do the trail really. We saw it and I walked some of it. Seemed short but the castle and walking around the area on the hill was good.

A lot of fun I always have a great time
highly recommend

Fun outing. Not much of a hike really but I enjoyed it immensely. Unbelievable views and very cool to see the castle

The castle was neat! The walking trails were alright. I wish the 2 large dogs there were on leashes, I had to wait until they were gone.

I wouldn't necessarily call this a hike but it's a must see for anyone in the area. Certainly a nice view of Kansas's under rated plains. It takes about 15 mins to make it to the top on foot, maybe 3 or 4 by car.

Great trail with lots of "forks" for more difficulty if needed. This is a great trail for hiking and bicycling. Starting the trail at the top of Coronado Heights and working your way down is more ideal. Kid friendly trail. Tall prairie grass in some areas. The four of us ended up with just one tick, not bad for the overgrowth on the thin trail in some spots. Kids loved the views! Make sure to stop in Lindsborg, KS on your way in or out. Cute and clean little town.

Bring toilet paper and hand sanitizer if you plan to use the facilities at the top.

It was a nice hike with some shade along the way.

We really enjoyed this hike with our kids! The stairs at the end was their favorite part! Cornado Heights is a family favorite!

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.
