The 9 Best And Most Beautiful Places To See Wildflowers In Kansas This Spring
What’s more beautiful than a field of wildflowers? A field of wildflowers in Kansas, of course. These are all of our favorite places to see wildflowers around our beautiful state once things are nice and warm, and we decided to share them with everyone else. Grab your bucket lists, because we’ve got a few more items for you to add.
1. Sandsage Bison Range - Garden City
This beautiful area dedicated to keeping this herd of bison safe and protected is also a great place for wildflower spotting. There's a lot of different types of wildflowers that pop up in Sandsage prairie, so keep your eyes peeled!
2. Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve - Strong City
One of the most beautiful places in Kansas is by far the Flint Hills, and this preserve is a good part of it. Wildflowers can be seen throughout almost any part of it, and it's always exciting to see new ones pop up each year.
3. Clinton Lake - Lawrence
If you've been out to Clinton Lake, you know that it's a great spot for watching the sun set, but now you know just how beautiful it can be when wildflowers are in bloom!
4. Konza Prairie - Manhattan
Everyone loves the Konza Prairie, and the wildflowers probably love it the most. All of these rolling hills and waving grasses only get better once spring rolls in.
5. Kanopolis State Park - Marquette
Though we love adventuring through Kanopolis for the rocky outcroppings and caves, we also love relaxing and enjoying a wildflower walk during our warm weather visits. We hope you do too!
6. Cimarron National Grassland - Elkhart
Way in the southwest corner, Cimarron National Grassland awaits with a plethora of wildflowers and adventure. If you've been waiting for a while to visit this spot, maybe spring is the perfect time for you!
7. Prairie Center Nature Reserve Trail - Olathe
This trail in Olathe is a short loop in a beautiful nature reserve that we just can't get enough of. A short hike out in nature is something we all need sometimes.
8. Chisholm Creek Park - Wichita
This oasis within the city is a beautiful example of coexisting with wildlife. Between all the animals hiding out and the wildflowers covering all of the sunny spots, it's the perfect place for a relaxing afternoon.
9. Jamestown Marsh Lookout Point - Norway
Though this is a lookout point, you can also find wildflowers in the area if you're lucky. They're not as abundant as they are in drier parts of Kansas but finding them is almost like finding gold.
We love wildflowers, but we also love to see our native wildlife. Of course, if you’d like to learn more about Sandsage Bison Range, you’ll find our full piece on it
