Hike over 40 miles of easy trails through 11,000 acres of gorgeous, unspoiled prairie with endless skies, colorful wildflowers, wildlife (including bison!), a forested creek, and a one-room schoolhouse. On the historical ranch there are an educational visitor center, a beautiful limestone house with a hand-carved walnut staircase, and a three-story limestone barn (complete with a horse and a barn cat). There are free prairie bus tours in the summer. If you want to get away from the city and fill your lungs with fresh air and experience nature and peace and quiet, this is the place for you! http://www.nps.gov/tapr/index.htm
