Rather than water, it’s the work of the wind that draws people to Sand Hills State Park.
Through the ages Kansas’ famous south wind created hundreds of short, steep and crowded dunes.
The hills hold dense thickets of wild plums and other plants hardy enough to survive an unforgiving landscape. Trails twisting, rising and rolling over the soft soil challenge hikers. Mountain bikers and equestrian fans often stay at the special campground at the park.
