As I’ve mentioned before, one of my biggest pet peeves is when people say that Kansas scenery is dull and boring (snobby out-of-stater say what?!) Do any of you reading this hear those same comments? If you do, you’re going to want to share these 10 hidden waterfalls with them. (It should shut them up almost immediately!)
1) Elk Falls
Elk Falls (population 107) isn't just "The World's Largest Living Ghost Town," it is also the "World's Largest AND Most Beautiful Living Ghost Town" with its stunning views of the Elk River and waterfall.
2) Overland Park Arboretum
Enjoy beautiful blooms and the sounds of this tranquil waterfall at this oasis in the city.
3) Drinkwater & Schriver Flour Mill (Cedar Point)
The 1875 Mill, located on the Cottonwood River, looks like something you'd see in a pastel painting.
4) Cedar Creek Falls (Olathe)
There's speculation over whether or not the waterfall is "natural" or not (or whether it had a little human help,) but one thing is for sure: these falls are stunning!
Dam...Just look at those flowing waters from Bowersock!
This small Emporia waterfall receives its flow from the Cottonwood River.
7) Chase Lake Falls (Cottonwood Falls)
These falls are an unexpected treasure you'll find when visiting this rural town.
8) Pillsbury Crossing (Riley County)
Fun Fact: Pioneers used the natural limestone slab at the top of the falls to cross Deep Creek.
9) Cowley Lake (Dexter)
This incredible waterfall has made several national "Must See" lists (including AARP, Yahoo, and Most Amazing in the World!)
10) Kanopolis Lake
In addition to the gorgeous waters, Kanopolis State Park is home to the amazing Dakota sandstone bluffs and Horsethief Canyon caves.
