At 4,039 feet above sea level, Mount Sunflower is the highest point in Kansas. Located in Wallace County, just east of the Kansas-Colorado border, Mount Sunflower is more than 3,300 feet above the state's topographic low point in Montgomery County in southeastern Kansas. Much of Mount Sunflower's elevation is due to the uplift of the Rocky Mountains to the west. Mount Sunflower is on private property, but the landowners, Ed and Cindy Harold, accommodate visitors who want to conquer its lofty summit and gaze at a typical High Plains, shortgrass prairie landscape. Join Ed and Cindy on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings to watch a gorgeous sunset, hit a golf ball into Colorado and sip on a Kansas brew. Bring your own lawn chair and a favorite beverage. (Sunset begins around 7:41pm MT / 8:41pm CT.) Click on "Read More" for driving directions or on the location icon for map location.
