Presentation and book signing in Hays – July 30 at 1pm

We’ll be in Hays at the Hays Public Library at 1pm this Saturday, July 30. Our presentation will include just what you can find on the trails of Kansas if you take the time to get off the highway.

Far more than a flyover state, Kansas has plenty of trails for those on foot, on wheels, and on horseback. We’ll tell you our favorite spots around the state, give you some information about writing the book, sign books, and books will be available to buy a $24.95.

Press Release



We were on the radio! KCUR Central Standard

We’ve reached out to others to talk to them about what they find special about Kansas and how they work on building trails, so it was unexpected and awesome to be contacted by KCUR Central Standard 89.3 FM for an interview about Kansas trails and the Kansas trail guidebook.

I (Kristin) got a little overexcited and managed to confuse the Oregon Trail with the Santa Fe Trail – you wouldn’t be going through the Cimarron National Grassland if you were on the Oregon Trail, unless you were lost. Other than that, I think it went pretty well! Here’s a link where you can listen to the interview and read about some of our personal favorite trails and some new trails that we’d recommend:
