This route begins and ends with a paved road passing by the Lincoln golf course, and quickly moves into more challenging gravel hills with beautiful scenic views along the way to Barnard. At Barnard, there are several murals to enjoy, and if you happen through on Saturday morning, stop in at Nancy’s Fancy’s to visit with the locals. From Barnard, the scenic views continue, with some great lines of post rock fence posts along the north and south Barnard-Beverly road. Lincoln County is the Post Rock Capital of Kansas, and these fence posts are one of the most unique cultural features of the area. At Beverly, you can grab lunch at the Beverly Bar & Grill before continuing the loop back to Lincoln. The last stretch features more scenic views to your south, a great view of the Twin Mounds hills to the south, and a historical stop at the Moffitt Memorial Site, where you’ll find more info about some of Lincoln County’s earliest settlers who died at that location in 1864.
