9 Of The Best Historic Stops Along Kansas’ Longest Hiking Trail

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.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate
