The Heartland of Kansas

If you ask someone to conjure up their idea of the ideal Kansas scenery, the Flint Hills usually get top billing! Whether it's the large abundance of spring and summer wildflowers, the majestic rolling hills named after the flint that sits at their surfaces or the hidden beauty found throughout the Flint Hills, there's something for everyone in this beautiful region of Kansas! The Flint Hills occupy east-central Kansas. At the heart of the Flint Hills lies the Konza Prairie, the Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve and the Flint Hills Scenic Byway. But make sure to get off the road and explore a little. The expression of Kansas being flat is put to rest by the abundance of sweeping vistas with views that stretch for miles in places. Waterfalls are hidden throughout the region for those willing to explore and the hiking is second to none!
