Adventure Kits

Plan an entire day for these trips as the driving, stops, and any unexpected side trips may take a while. We encourage the patrons to explore many places, even those not on the exploration route as it will lead to more learning about Emporia and Lyon County. Exploration is always a good thing!

Patrons do not have to follow the routes. We have simply recommended stops along the way.
