What do Do Outside
Walk, run or bike the Välkommen Trail. This paved 4.5 mile trail meanders through town with markers along the way that share some of the town’s rich history. Take in nature’s sites and sounds when crossing the Välkommen Bridge over the Smoky Hill River.
On the southernmost bluff of the Smoky Hills, known as Coronado Heights, sits a small, Spanish style stone castle built in 1936 as a Works Progress Administration project. Bring your camera along and climb to the top for views of the Smoky Valley.
