Konza Prairie Kings Creek Trail Loop is a 4.7 mile loop that takes you through the timber lined banks of Kings creek before entering the rolling Flint Hills tall grass prairie. Much of this land was part of the Dewey Ranch. Now buffalo roam the prairie again. 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.

Beautiful hike. Not too challenging and offers a lot of great views that Kansas has to offer. Trail was clearly marked and in good condition.

Decent hike. Well maintained trail. Autumn change of colors would be a nice time of year to hike it. Could be a decent hike for snow shoeing.
