Kuenzli Creek Oxen Tours


category : Tours
Kuenzli Creek Oxen Tours Experience the speed of travel on the western trails throughout the Tallgrass Prairie of the Flint Hills.

Our two hour tour makes a wholesome and educational family outing. We prefer family groups of about six or less.

On this one mile trip you will experience the speed of travel and some of the discomforts that families on the western trails endured.

You can walk alongside or ride in an authentic reproduction of an immigrant trail wagon as shown in the Kansas Museum of History. The wagon is pulled by two oxen, and travels through areas of reseeded grasses and virgin tallgrass prairie. Along the way, we discuss the problems encountered on the trail and rest at a small spring.

The trip ends by descending a steep bluff where the wagon wheels have to be tied to hold the wagon back.

Appropriate outdoor clothes and good sturdy shoes should be worn. Shorts are not recommended. 1850s period dress clothing might be fun to wear. Bring your cameras!


Admission: We do not charge a fee for this service; however, we do accept donations. A donation of $30-50, or whatever you feel appropriate, will be accepted.
Hours: For reservations and times, please call.
