This parcel has been one of the most recognizable and most photographed pieces of land in all of Kansas. Located along the historic and scenic Gyp Hill Road in Barber County, KS, this property has regularly featured on magazine covers, brochures and tourism advertisements throughout Kansas due to its awesome landscape characteristics. LandThis property has changes in elevation rarely seen in Kansas. With its rocky ledges, deep canyons and the dramatic Gyp Hills emanating directly upward in many places, the property is not only beautiful, but also useful. With multiple ponds and springs located on the property, it has been used successfully for generations for pasturing cattle, hunting, fishing and it has long-standing oil production as well.
There are many, many spots that would make incredible home sites throughout the property. Using the existing landscapes, one could choose to have a home sit up high with and untold number of miles to view in the distance, or you could choose to use one of the rocky ledges as a scenic backdrop with the spires and mesas rising above.
RecreationWhitetail deer, turkey and quail and waterfowl hunting are all available on this property. The deep canyons hold thick vegetation that provides wonderful cover for whitetail deer. The property is situated in the middle of KS Whitetail Hunting Unit 16, known far and wide to be one of the best areas for producing trophy bucks. The property could easily be enhanced for all kinds of wildlife with the addition of food plots as well. Quail whistle throughout the property and are bountiful, making their home in the mixture of prairie grass and thick cedars. Predator hunting is also available and can be a unique experience from the many high vantage points.
There are trails throughout the property that provide for excellent ATV or off-road opportunities as well. Again, with the changes in elevation and unique landscape, this is a trail rider's dream.
