Sand Hills State Park, Hutchinson


Directions: Turn East from Hi Way 61 onto either 69 th street or 56 th street. Trailhead is aprox. 1 mile from hi way. Just North of Hutchinson between "Hutch" and the burg of Medora.

Trail Information: The trail runs through the sand hills between 56th and 69th street. There are turn around points where you can shorten your run. On the 69 th street side the trail runs through a small forest.

Miscellaneous Information: Great for walking, running, or just a picnic. Nice trails, however some areas are marshy. There can be standing water in low areas. I would avoid the park in May and early June because of ticks. Some small sand dunes and hills. On the 69th street side there is a small forest of Catalpa, elm, and cottonwood trees. A nice trail to take the family including young children.
Also in Hutchinson the Cosmospher Discovery Center, space artifacts, lunar lander, Apollo, Gemini, and Mercury capsules, lots more. Anchor Inn for great Mexican Food. 24th and Main Hutchinson's oldest flooring specialty store Bourells Carpet One.
