This Hike In Kansas Will Give You An Unforgettable Experience

It is no secret that Kansas is home to several spectacular hikes. From the Konza Prairie to the Tallgrass Preserve to Medicine Lodge, there is a new outdoor opportunity in almost every nook of the state. If we had to pick a favorite, however, it would have to be the hike around Kanopolis State Park. Here’s why:

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

In addition to the rolling plains and abundant wildlife you’ve come to expect from the Sunflower State, Kanopolis offers a variety of colorful stone formations, sandstone pillars, chalky outcroppings, and sightseeing opportunities that you won’t find anywhere else. No matter the time of year, this Salina-area State Park has special scenes and experiences that you won’t soon forget.

Want some advice? Try to visit this Kansas gem at least once every season so that you can see the blooming yucca in the spring, swim in the reservoir during the summer, witness the incredible changing colors of the fall and enjoy a snowy wonderland come winter.
