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.

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.

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.
