Sunflower Trail

Sunflower Trail

This is a multi-use recreational and nature trail between Marion and McPherson.  The Sunflower Santa Fe Trail is located on the original Marion and McPherson Railroad that was a leg of the Atchison Topeka & Santa Fe Railroad.
It travels a distance of 33 miles, beginning to the east in Marion and passing through the communities of Hillsboro, Lehigh, Canton and Galva.  The trail will eventually connect with the Meadowlark Trail at McPherson.
The length of the trail parallels US Highway 56 and curves gently through cultivated farmland and pastures and crosses near the junction of the historic Santa Fe, Chisholm Trail and Cherokee Trails near Canton.

  1. The Sunflower Trail is awesome!!! I live near Galva & walk between 20th & 21st. It is an oasis- during these difficult times. Recently a group trimmed & cleaned up between 21st & 22nd. They were told to trim back – too far in my opinion!!! I hope the trail between 20th & 21st stays the oasis & jungle that it is!!!
