  • One of my favorite places on Earth. This is the heart of Kansas. There isn't much of the tall rass prairie left, so visiting this preserve is a must. There are miles of trails and and the some of the most gorgeous views you can find in the state. You can see bison on certain trails too. Great visitors center as well, helpful staff and interesting items for sale. Dogs are allowed on certain trails.
  • Tallgrass Prairie is a beautiful preserve that really lets you experience just how quiet nature really is. With a lot of more well known areas people bring a lot of noise with them but here you can really experience a natural silence. If you look close enough you can see small animals scurry buy and birds soaring past.
