This is a multi-use recreational and nature trail between Marion and McPherson. The Sunflower Santa Fe Trail is located on the original Marion and McPherson Railroad that was a leg of the Atchison Topeka & Santa Fe Railroad.
It travels a distance of 33 miles, beginning to the east in Marion and passing through the communities of Hillsboro, Lehigh, Canton and Galva. The trail will eventually connect with the Meadowlark Trail at McPherson.
The length of the trail parallels US Highway 56 and curves gently through cultivated farmland and pastures and crosses near the junction of the historic Santa Fe, Chisholm Trail and Cherokee Trails near Canton.
