It was a beautiful morning and a beautiful hike!!!!
It was a beautiful morning for a beautiful hike!!!!!
Went with 3 kids (8,7, 5) and it was a great distance and had nice variety, good vista mid-trail, fun bridge and we even saw 2 deer.
The scenery is absolutely incredible! The first hill is a pretty rough climb, but once you get to the top- and the Flint Hills roll out in front of you- you can't wait to climb it again.
Great prairie views! It was about 98 degrees when we hiked it, but the breeze was perfect. We also saw 7 wild turkeys as we were finishing the hike! Alas, we did not see any bison.
A really cool trail, has some nice views and there are different paths to take. Loved it.
Excellent!!! Can't wait to go back!
Excellent trail. There's a self-guided map you can follow if you want. Easy to follow posted signs. Will be back to do the longer trail.
