Kansas is routinely described as one of the flattest states, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t some jaw-dropping rock formations jutting out of Kansas’ famous fields. Case in point: Monument Rocks, also nicknamed the Chalk Pyramids, which are sedimentary rock formations that stand a whopping 70 feet tall.
If you’re looking for a cheap and awe-inspiring road trip destination, Monument Rocks is where you want to go. Standing about 25 miles south of Oakley, Monument Rocks is located on private rangeland, but visitors are allowed during daylight hours — and they’re allowed in for free!
Kansas is home to all kinds of natural beauty, but Monument Rocks is easily one of the most interesting and gorgeous places to visit in the state thanks to its long history and unusual formations. And you can’t beat the free price tag!
