Prairie Bus Tours - 1 1/2 hours -

A step-on guide can board your Motorcoach and provide an interpretive prairie tour on the way to the Scenic Overlook Area south of Cottonwood Falls. If time allows, visitors may step off the bus to experience tallgrass prairie at the Scenic Overlook.

Motorcoach drop off area and parking is available at and near the new Visitor Center.

Due to the current inaccessible conditions of our bus tour road, the bus tours have been cancelled WITHIN the preserve until further notice.
