Gypsum Hills Wildlife Drive - Kansas drive

Gypsum Hills Wildlife Drive

The Gypsum Hills Wildlife Drive is almost 50 miles of beautiful red mesas, amazing wildlife viewing and great scenery everywhere! It starts in Hardtner, Kansas and finishes up in Sun City, Kansas. Head west out of Hardtner for almost 20 miles on Hackberry Rd, before turning north onto Aetna Rd. The drive crosses the Salt Fork of the Arkansas River, the Aetna ghost town, and abundance of wildlife. Coyotes, deer, bats, coyotes, wild turkeys, and bobcats can be found in these parts. Keep an eye out of rattlesnakes, tarantulas and lizards as well. Also, Bison roam these lands on some of the ranchland, so keep your eyes out for the herds! I found out about this one from the Natural Kansas website.
