Written Directions

We left Olathe, KS at nine and arrived in Council Grove, KS at 11:30am. Just take US Highway 56 all the way.

Scenery

The scenery good and varied, rural, farming and the east side of the Flint Hills (just enough). Several small old towns along the way. My wife and I really enjoyed the trip!

Drive Enjoyment

Two lane mostly 55 mph. Very little traffic. No potholes. The road is good (though not a lot of twisties).

Tourism Opportunities

This is a 112 mile ride from Olathe, KS to the Hayes House Restaurant in Council Grove, KS. Council Grove is a good destination, bikers welcome. The Hays House was a great destination with really good Fried Chicken. Along the way you'll pass through several old time struggling towns and a Casey's in every one of them.
