Discover the natural beauty of the panoramic Native Stone Scenic Byway. Seen in everything from hillsides to courthouses, these amazing natural limestone formations and stonework used in architecture can be found along Hwy. K-4 and Hwy. K-99 in the Mission Creek and Mill Creek valleys, as well as through the stunning Flint Hills in Shawnee and Wabaunsee counties.
Limestone is the bedrock on which much of Kansas rests, and this stone has been the building block of many historical buildings and the source of countless natural landmarks. The Native Stone Scenic Byway highlights both the natural wonder of rock formations and the amazing craftwork of masons who built the small towns and communities with native stone.
