Very nice park with surfaces alternating from concrete to blacktop to boardwalk.

If you’re in the Manhattan area, I’d definitely say to give it a go. The Flint Hills don’t get enough credit for how pretty they are.

It’s no mountain trail, but it’s a nice little with plenty to see.

An excellent hike that is more varied than you might expect, with respectable ascents and descents, rock outcrops, and wonderful views from valley and ridge top alike (including views of Manhattan in the distance). I can’t recommend this one enough.

Nice hike with some great views of the prairies. You can choose to do one of three loops depending how far you want to hike. Plenty of parking.

this is our go to trail when we need to get moving but dont have the time.

Simple historic site but significant regarding the Pony Express. Its worth a little effort to make it to this site.

What a challenge!
Started at the trailhead and took lefts at all forms until E where I took the cutoff to the right. Stay left at L and you'll end with 10 miles under your boots! Lovely Hike.

Nice change of scenery from NE Kansas. Prairie hiking is nice every now and then. Beautiful!

Great trail - a little tough for smaller kids. 10 year old did great 7 year old with some solid complaints and 3 year old was losing his mind! But we loved it!

Great! With 4 kids we found this scenic and no trouble. Trail head isn’t well marked but once you find it, there’s no trouble following it around the lake.

This was enjoyable. The trail featured beautiful scenery. We saw some wildlife but no bison on this trip.

Really enjoyed the views and the paths were easy to follow!

this a great short trail. I run it quite a bit and you can add some legs to get a good 3 miles. lots of shade so great when its hot. Almost always get to see some deer as well.

We found out the hard way that this is NOT a biking trail like this app says. The park has multiple conflicting signs. Some say "bikes on designated trails", some say bikes allowed while the signs by the nature center say no bikes allowed anywhere. We rode for 1.5 miles and never say a no biking sign.

Fantastic trails, will be back to ride here again!

Nice hike close to town. Would rate as easy instead of moderate

Rustic trail that made me work a little. Definitely need good hiking boots/shoes. Not paved.

My favorite of the 3 loops! Wildflowers are amazing in the spring/early summer!

Love all 3 of the Konza trails! The second and third loops are very sunny. They are especially beautiful in spring/early summer when there is an abundance of wildflowers!

Went on an impromptu bike ride on my way back to Oklahoma from Colorado. Grass on trail was a little tall which isn’t bad when you’re on a bike but the amount of ticks is ridiculous. Saw some really large lizards but I didn’t see any snakes. I came upon a couple of spots where I could imagine snakes congregate if it was hot and sunny out. But I lucked out because it was kind of cool and overcast out. I would still recommend giving it a try.

Beautiful trail. Not much shade. I would advise wearing a sun hat.

Beautiful hike that our whole family loves! Our four kids get excited every time we mention it. Best advice is to get there when the trail opens. We weren’t on the trail five minutes before we spotted dear grazing near the bridges.

Nice trail. A lot of different flowers and great views. At some spots it can get tricky to navigate because of missing signs.

Hiked this trail 6-9-18. Hot day for June (95 degrees!). Lots of bugs swarming me the whole time, but only one bite. Overall, a decent hike with some minor elevation changes. A creek crossing, about half shaded, half exposed. A little too much gravel road for me... I felt like I was just walking through some farmer's field mostly. My phone says I walked 2.5 miles when I finished the trail... I prefer trails a bit longer (5-6 miles). The creek seemed pretty slimy...and an odor of something dead and decaying was prevalent in spots. The creek seemed more like cattle runoff (sewage) than a natural stream. But hey it was. Fairly quiet stroll away from the usual suburban "trail" of pavement and underpasses. I would hike again, maybe on a cooler day.

I took the children and found this end of the trail while having a great adventure. I recommend all families stop and take in the free adventure. You'll be impressed and happy you did.

Great trail, great park! I’ve hiked every inch of trail in the park and it’s great! I despise paved trails so I loved how the majority of the park has dirt trails. Haven’t been inside the nature center but probably will stop in next time I’m here for a hike. Only downside is dogs aren’t allowed anywhere in the park so I had to leave my hiking buddy home and he was not happy about it...I got the sad puppy dog eyes.

Great trail with loads of interesting points along the way.
