This huge and beautiful nature trail is currently around 90 miles and counting, but we can’t wait to keep adding more to it as we go. The history of our state stretches across this trail and we’ve picked out some of the highlights for you to see. The longest hiking trail in Kansas is also the most historic, even if it takes a long time to travel.
