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 as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.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.
