Prairie Spirit Trail

State Park

A century ago Kansans took the train from town to town, watching the countryside lazily pass as they road the rails.

Well, those rails are gone but the experience of a slow ride by tall grass prairie, lush farm fields, woodlands and over clear streams can still be enjoyed on the 51-mile Prairie Spirit Trail. Made of packed gravel or pavement, it’s one of the easiest biking treks in Kansas.

Towns come about every ten miles, and we hope you’ll swing in and do some exploring. Take your time. Rail travel was never meant to be fast.
