Amid Kansas’ 3,000-plus miles of trails are four great springtime treks many hikers and mountain bikers have never heard of. Redbud trees and wildflowers are blooming, and morels are sprouting from the ground.
Mountain lions are generally calm, quiet, and elusive. People rarely get more than a brief glimpse of a mountain lion in the wild. Lion attacks on people are rare, with fewer than a dozen fatalities in North America in more than 100 years. But just in case you do encounter a mountain lion, this video will help you be prepared.
