Be advised this is a little ways off Hwy 83 near Oakley, Kansas. If it has rained or going to rain the road can be treacherous. The dry rocky road will limit your speed and could easily damage a windshield if behind or passing another vehicle. Once you get to the "Chalk Pyramids" you will not be disappointed. Amazing formation... 更多
I love the Monument Rocks, I would always go there with my family when I was little. Even got a few scrapes climbing them! It really shows what Kansas has in stock for us, even history. Well this is coming from a lady who grew up and lives in Oakley, Kansas.
Wanted to find some cool things in KS, found one!! This is such a neat place!! Worth the drive even for a quick visit. I will say the drive was not bad (had overheard some folks talking about it before we went and the cattle guards must be a new concept to them) we made it just fine in a... 更多

Come through here with a full tank of gas.
My husband found this place on the map and was determined to see it. I was not excited about the side trip. To find it, you leave I-70 at one of the Oakley exits, go south on highway 83, and then 8 miles on Jayhawk, a dirt/gravel road. It isn't a quick trip, so give yourself some time to get... 更多
Headed east on 83 and followed gps. We seen a sign that said monument to the left, but we kept going per gps. Found out that turn would of saved us about 10 miles. But road wasn't on gps. Dirt road to get there, which concerned us. Thought we were lost because we didn't see any signs. All in all... 更多
What an amazing thing to find in the middle of nowhere. Rising up out of the flat plain, what looks like a ring of giant standing stones. On closer inspection you see they're actually not connected, but of beautiful Natural workmanship. Awe inspiring, and that's not a phrase I use often.
