From the windswept plains to the majestic Flint Hills, the subtle beauty of the Sunflower State is best appreciated from its myriad wide-ranging trails. And whether you're an avid hiker or desultory explorer, a bicyclist or horseback rider, this book makes a most congenial guide. An invaluable companion for exploring new trails or learning about accustomed routes, this comprehensive guide will tell you all you need to know (as well as what it might surprise you to learn) about the trails that crisscross Kansas--history and geography, wildlife and scenery, park locations and cultural possibilities, and, now and then, even a bit of geology and botany.

The illustrated guide includes detailed full-color maps, GPS coordinates, and, of course, extensive route descriptions--through historic sights and prairies and state parks, to lakes and rivers and wildlife refuges. The authors identify the best trails for families or going solo; for running or hiking, biking or horseback riding; for hunting wildflowers, encountering wildlife, enjoying scenic vistas, or exploring Kansas history. They also include helpful descriptions of flora and fauna, and historical highlights for each area. Concise, complete, and engaging, this is the guide anyone journeying the trails of Kansas, seasoned hiker and armchair traveler alike, should not be without.

Our state has so many beautiful and diverse landscapes to explore: from the Baker Wetlands in Lawrence to the Cimarron National Grassland in the southwest corner of Kansas. The authors have included a plethora of special places and I expect you will discover many new adventures while perusing inside this book. Checkout this new guide and plan your next excursion within Kansas.
