Time: 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm


Other Information:

Space is limited on tours. Spaces must be reserved. I try for the tours to not be too much larger than 15-ish people. Please make your plans and email sarakay.carrell@ks.gov to reserve a spot! Hikes down in the rocks will be approximately 1.5 hours. Please plan for about a 2 hour timeframe to allow for time to hike back to the parking lot!.

Please remember that an annual vehicle pass or a daily vehicle pass are necessary to enter the park. There is a SELF PAY station available at LJBSP. Cash or check only. If you do not have an annual pass, the daily vehicle fee is $5.00 per vehicle.

Come to Little Jerusalem Badlands State Park and enjoy an off trail guided hike lead by a park naturalist! Be prepared for rough hiking, uneven terrain, and scrambling thru grass and brush. Wear boots, bring water, a snack and a hiking stick! Please do not underestimate the terrain. If it is summer it is HOT down in the canyons. The rock formations do a great job of blocking the wind, so BE PREPARED for temperatures to be 10+ degrees warmer during the hike in the rocks!  If its winter, be prepared for the cold! The North wind rips right thru the rock formations as there is nothing to block the north winds!

We will start at the Life on the Rocks trail head and venture off in a direction that will take us off into the bottoms of the rock formations. Once at the base of the rocks, we will explore the various nooks, crannies, and spires of Little Jerusalem's Niobrara chalk formations. Along the way, learn about the grasses, forbs, mammals, reptiles, insects, geology, and other great things that nature presents to us.  Be prepared for rough hiking, uneven terrain, ups and downs, and scrambling thru grass and brush. No set path is followed! So be ready for an adventure! It is an intermediate level hike/terrain. We hike at a moderate pace with stop and go to learn, talk, ask questions, and take photos. Wear boots, bring sunscreen, water, a snack and a hiking stick! 

**Hikes will be cancelled by inclement weather!** If it is snowing, blizzarding, freezing rain, raining, lightning, or any other unsafe weather brought on by Mother Nature, all activities will be canceled at Little Jerusalem. Scott City and Oakley are the closest towns to search for weather on National Weather Service.
