The 11,000 acres of tallgrass prairie is a reminder of the landscape that covered 140 million acres of North America. Today, less than 4% remains, most of it in Flint Hills. Get close up on one of the many front- and back-country trails. Step back in time and stroll the Historic Ranch and Southwind Nature Trail to admire the impressive ranch house, barn, corrals and more built by Stephen Jones in the late 1800’s. The Bottomland Nature Trail is wheelchair accessible and features interpretive panels. Don’t miss the free 90-minute ranger-led bus tours April 30 to October 30. Free entrance.
