      Interstate Highway 70 passes through the northern edge of the Kansas Flint Hills, which are formations of limestone bedrock covered by vast grass prairies. This particular limestone has been used for everything from fences to buildings, and this route has many examples of this rock usage. Depending on your direction of travel, get off the interstate at either Exit 350 or Exit 328. Highways 4 and 99 are the roads to take south of I-70. The route passes through three towns and gives a nice tour of the many uses of native stone.

      If you go:
      The Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve is accessible from the scenic route. Another attraction is the Kaw Mission State Historic Park and Museum in Council Grove. Just down the street is one of the twelve Madonna of the Trail statues erected by the Daughters of the American Revolution. Other historic towns can be explored along this route.
