“hike through tallgrass prairies”
Most of Konza was once a part of the Dewey Cattle Ranch. In the 1970's, the Nature Conservancy purchased the property, over 13 square miles. It is managed by Kansas State University to be used as a research natural area to study the tallgrass prairie ecosystem. a public nature trail takes visitors on a scenic hike across the virgin tallgrass prairie and atop the limestone-capped hills overlooking the property. Brochures, trail guides and an interpretive kiosk are found at the trailhead
Mistakenly got off on the wrong exit make sure you get off at 307. There's some trails you can walk through, we timed it so we were there for sunset and it was GORGEOUS. Totally worth stopping if you want to take a little walk through some really gorgeous nature.
