About this Exploration:
The Post Rock Scenic Byway is an eighteen-mile route that extends north and south on K-23 2 through the Smoky Hills of Ellsworth, Lincoln and Russell Counties in north central Kansas. K-232 is a two-lane asphalt surfaced road.
The byway connects I-70 on the south with K-18 on the north and links the communities of Wilson (Ellsworth County) and Lucas (Russell County). This byway is named for the unique native limestone rocks used for fence posts in the area.
The byway offers scenic, recreational, geological and agricultural viewing opportunities. It was one of the finalists for the 8 Wonders of Kansas Geography.
A six-mile segment of the byway is adjacent to the Wilson Lake recreational area with scenic turnouts that overlook the dam and offer vistas of the lake and the valley below the dam. Rest areas, hiking and biking trails, picnic areas and campgrounds offer a variety of recreational opportunities.
Wilson Lake covers 9,000 acres and holds various state fishing records. Weekend anglers and fishing tournament participants can seek white bass, walleye, striped, small mouth and large mouth bass.
