Chautauqua Falls

Sedan City Lake, north of Sedan, KS

GPS: 37.1683 x -96.2169

Chautauqua Falls are easily one of the most beautiful set of falls in the entire state! And also some of the least known. There are at least 3 different drops, along with various cascades. The cascades start at the top, and then two large drops of around 15 feet on either side of a boulder drop into a pool below. After that, another 7-8 foot set of falls is further down. There may be more falls farther down the creek. I can't wait to get back there and hike further down to see what's along the trail. These falls can be difficult to access up-close, but are one of my favorite in Kansas!
