Lone Rock Trail offers peace and quiet just minutes away.

The Lone Rock Trail offers some amazing views but is hardly used


The view from the top of Lone Rock goes on for miles. The UMore Wind Turbine juts out of the trees and past that the stacks from Flint Hills can be seen.

It's quiet up there. The only sounds are birds singing and the wind rustling through the trees.

The Lone Rock Trail is located in Empire Township. Hikers and horseback riders can travel the 9.9 miles of trail. During the winter, the trail is open for cross country skiing.
