The 20 mile long Post Rock Scenic Byway runs along K-232, across the Wilson Lake Dam, from Lucas to Wilson in central Kansas. The byway showcases the native limestone fence posts and farm steads built by the early settlers. The stone was used for building material because of the lack of trees.
Lucas was designated the Grassroots Art Capital of Kansas in 1996 by then Governor Graves. Lucas is home to the "World Famous" Garden of Eden, Grassroots Art Center, Miller's Park, Deeble Sculpture Garden, Fork Art Park and Bowl Plaza.
Along the byway you will discover 4 Faces in Stone carved into the limestone fence posts. Between K-18 highway and the Wilson Lake Dam watch for Chelsey, Janea, Bill and Leo D. The faces were carved by California artist Fred Whitman. There are more carved stone posts in Lucas.
Wilson Lake is known as Kansas Clearest Lake. Fishermen, hunters, boaters and campers enjoy the 9,000 acre lake year round.
The 28 mile long Switchgrass Mountain Bike Trail is "IMBA Epic" rated. Bikers from all over the United States come to ride the trail.
The community of Wilson at the south end of the byway has the World's Largest Czech Egg plus several mini Czech Eggs scattered around their historic downtown. Wilson is known as the Czech Capital of Kansas.
