The Heartland of Kansas

One of the most scenic places in all of Kansas are the Gypsum Hills! The Gypsum Hills are sometimes referred to as the red hills and encompass a large portion of south central Kansas from about Medicine Lodge in the east to around Ashland in the west. The Gypsum Hills Scenic Byway cuts right through the heart of some of the most beautiful scenery in the area, stretching from Medicine Lodge to Coldwater. The area is known for some beautiful backroad drives as well, such as the beautiful drive from Ashland to Clark State Fishing Lake. Big Basin and St. Jacob's Well, two of Kansas' most beautiful hidden gems, lie on the western edge of the region!
