When people think of the Kansas countryside, they often picture scenes from Little House on the Prairie or other shows where people roam through pastures of tall grass and wildflowers dotting the landscape. The Flint Hills of Kansas is a region that typifies this image. Drive about two hours northwest of Topeka and start your tour of the historic junctions that dot the Flint Hills region.
Here’s your bucket list trail from north Kansas to Wichita following the highlights of the Flint Hills. The first group will start on Rte. 243, stay primarily on KS 177 until you hit I35.
