KS Posted in Kansas June 23, 2015 by Annie These 9 Hiking Spots In Kansas Are Completely Out Of This World Summer = hiking season…Am I right?! If you haven’t been hiking yet this year, what’s stopping you?! Here are 9 places to hike in Kansas that are completely out of this world: 1.) Wyandotte County Lake (Kansas City) Flickr/***Karen This "moderate" trail is 8.8 miles and perfect for hiking or biking. 2.) Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve (Strong City) Flickr/Randy Watson The Tallgrass Prairie once covered over covered 170 million acres of North America -- sadly, only 4% of that remains (and it is most definitely worth exploring). 3.) Konza Prairie (Manhattan) Flickr/kittylibrarian The Flint Hills are stunningly beautiful...So it just makes sense to hike them! (Don't forget your camera) 4.) Table Mound Hiking Trail (Elk City Lake) Flickr/Granger Meador From dense woodlands to rolling meadows, there is something for everyone's liking at Table Mound. 5.) Castle Rock (Gove County) Flickr/Patrick Emerson Located just outside of Quinter, Castle Rock is a hiker's paradise with its rocky, chalky slopes! 6.) Wilson Lake (Wilson) Flickr/Kansas Tourism In addition to hiking, the Wilson Lake area offers fishing, boating and ample sightseeing opportunities. 7.) Cedar Bluff State Park (Ellis) Flickr/Kansas Tourism This is a prime hiking location for those wanting to explore without any crowds. 8.) Horsethief Canyon Trail Flickr/Vincent Parsons The two trails, located inside Kanopolis State Park, are classified as orange (difficult) and blue (easy). 9.) Kanopolis State Park (Marquette) Flickr/Vincent Parsons Last, but certainly not least, is Kanopolis State Park itself. In addition to Horsethief, Kanopolis is home to more than 30 miles of trail, including some in the scenic Smoky Hill Wildlife Area. Where is your favorite spot to hike?
