A trail guide is available at the trailhead that describes key points and geography of the Flint hills prairie. The trail is lined with limestone pea gravel or follows a service road that is either bare dirt or limestone gravel. The trail markers takes you left when the trail forks just after you cross Kings Creek.

Excellent training value at a conveniently close location. This loop was only about 6 miles, but I found it a nice mix of both medium- and small-hillwork. Moderately technical terrain, mostly hard doubletrack, and plenty windy when I ran it. The views were memorable, too. Good location for dedicated hill repeats (

A nice easy hike that was well marked. There was plenty to see and took about two and a half hours at a leisurely pace.

So beautiful. Second time doing the 6 mile hike and it was amazing both times.

There are actually 3 loops of 2, 4, and 6 mile lengths. Possibly the closest thing left to indigenous tall grass prairie. we live near and hike it often. PLEASE NOTE this is private Conservancy property, and research is ongoing. People have been ignoring the 3 simple rules, and there has been serious discussion about closing them. The rules are: no dogs, stay on trail, closed from sundown ti sunup.

Well maintained trails, can be crowded with limited other trails in the area but worth seeing once

Wonderful trail. I don't make it out as much as I would like, but definitely a good trail.

The view made me stop running for a bit after I ran up the stairs. Awesome place.
