Situated at a formidable height of 4,039 feet above sea level, the lofty summit of Mount Sunflower is the highest point in the state of Kansas, the United States. Yet, it’s barely noticeable and virtually indistinguishable from the surrounding plain. There is no peak here that you can stand upon and take in the breathtaking view. Just a small bump in the middle of a private ranch located half a mile from the Colorado border. Mount Sunflower is perhaps the only 4,000-plus-feet peak that you can climb by driving.

At the “top”, there is a small shrine containing a metal sculpture of a sunflower—Kansas’s state flower, a covered picnic area, a memorial to the Harold family who has been homesteading here since 1905, and a mail box with a guest book inside.
