Konza Prarie-Kings Creek Loop

Rate this Adventure 4.6 miles 396 ft gain  - Loop Trail

Added by Jacob Nichols

This hike features amazing views, well marked trails, and is especially beautiful in the spring and fall.

Starting at the trailhead, this very well-maintained trail is an easy, 4.6 mile loop. This is the second of 3 loops from the trailhead. The longest one is just over 6 miles and connects the Konza Prairie Loop with the Kings Creek Loop and the Goodwin Hill Loop. Don't want the full 6 miler, but are looking for a little more than the shortest loop? As you're heading down the Konza Prarie-Kings Creek Loop, close the loop by taking a left on the trail when it meets up with the junction for the Konza Prairie-Goodwin Hill Loop.
