The Flint Hills Nature Trail is a converted rail bed. Climbing is minimal and the grades are gradual. You won’t find any steep climbs on this route. And while this particular section is set up as an out and back starting and ending in Admire, KS, the FHNT actually extends for 117 miles. There are plenty of views as this path generally follows the Santa Fe Trail and ultimately concludes in historic Council Grove. A great ride for families, beginners, and advanced riders alike. Everyone can find all day enjoyment on this trail, as you can set your own distance.
