  • Getting there is a good part of the fun you'll have on this side trip. Once you turn off the pavement you will be on a relatively smooth Kansas dirt road, but a little warning, if it is dry, you don't want to be following anywhere near a vehicle in front of you. It's a pretty long journey but out of no where you be taken aback as these 50 to 75' high chalk rocks seem to appear just as you're about to turn around. They are pretty cool to see and they do photograph well. We enjoyed walking around and viewed them from all angles, they are certainly worth the visit and enjoy.
  • A must see! A drive in Kansas everyone should take a time to see when driving through Kansas. First stop to see Buffalo Bill Museum then a short 20 min ( you might see antelope in the way) drive to this magnificent site in the middle of nowhere. You won't be disappointed. Oh, be careful of the tarantulas.
  • Simply beautiful! Hard to imagine that Kansas has such a site, but here it is! Wear sun screen bring sunglasses. The rocks are bright in the sun light. Not hard to find a loose keepsake. Great picture place.
  • Amazing place. Beautiful natural arch. Definitely worth a detour for a couple hours. You'll have nice photos. About 8 miles on a well maintained dirt road.
  • The place is awesome. Not too big or too small. There are three groups of rocks. It's not difficult to get there but make sure your vehicle is ready for dirt roads.
