Park Activities

Tallgrass prairie once covered 170 million acres of North America. Within a generation the vast majority was developed and plowed under. Today less than 4% remains, mostly here in the Kansas Flint Hills. The preserve protects a nationally significant remnant of the once vast tallgrass prairie and its cultural resources. Here the tallgrass prairie takes its last stand.

One of my favorite spots in all of America. Just gorgeous. The infinite grasslands offer a glimpse of what the Great Plaints *used* to look like. In the heart of the Flint Hills. Bring your Nikon.

Bisons, snakes, locusts, and scenic grasslands visible till the horizon. Summers would be humid and hot but lush green grass, fall would be yellow colored grass but cool winds. Great for long hikes.
