Attraction details
Owner description: Situated at the southwestern corner of Kansas, the Cimarron National Grasslands is nearly 110,000 acres of flat, impressive terrain with low vegetative growth. Its ancient Point of Rocks offers spectacular views, and the underground Cimarron River affords lush greenery above a dry riverbed.

The grasslands are different from Michigan! This is the true wide open spaces. The Santa Fe trail ran along here. Imagine the early pioneers who braved the trip west - days and days of travel along bumpy, dusty trails with nothing to see but grass and sky. It is beautiful to those who love big skies and open land.

I was traveling through "No Mans Land" recently, and discovered this off the beaten path national attraction. I traveled from Texas through the pan handle of Oklahoma and through the South western corner of Kansas into Colorado. I just couldn't wait to get to my hotel to write a review on the beauty of the area. Just north of Elkhart Kansas, you can find an area on the Cimarron river bed called point of rocks. This is an excellent area to hike and observe the natural minerals of South west Kansas.

The entire area is Beautiful, Peaceful and Inspiring. Definately worth the visit. The wildlife is impressive and the night sky magical. Do not miss the Sunrise nor the Sunsets.

Must be a true naturalist to appreciate this place. Out of the way but worth the stop. Grasslands are under appreciated but this place is great.

Fewer places can you find nature not molested by mankind. Large open sky, rolling hills and plains. Birds, antelope, snakes, insects and native grassland. The kids might wonder what you are up to but take a little time to just take it in and think of the Natives that originally existed here.
