The Unique, Out-Of-The-Way Chalk Pyramids In Kansas That Are Always Worth A Visit

The only time we’re grateful for erosion is when we gaze upon the Chalk Pyramids, also known as Monument Rocks. It’s situated west of the Castle Rock area in Gove County and is the only remnant of the vast inland sea that existed some 80 million years ago. Today, it’s the first natural landmark in Kansas, designated in 1968. Even though it’s located on private range-land, the owners have been kind enough to share it with the public.

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.

We can assure you that the formations are incredible, a true wonder of beauty in the open plains. At sunrise, they’re even more spectacular as the sun hits rocks. But please remember to adhere to the rules and read the signs to keep Chalk Pyramids open to the public.
