Honoring the Cowboy Traditions of the tallgrass prairie in the Kansas Flint Hills - Flying W Ranch

Come experience the authentic cowboy lifestyle, complete with horseback riding, cattle drives, wagon rides, prairie burns, wildflower walks, star gazing, fishing and hiking in the Kansas Flint Hills. The Flying W Ranch is located in the heart of the Flint Hills, America’s last tallgrass prairie, and is operated by fifth-generation Flint Hills ranchers Josh and Gwen Hoy. This 7,000 acre cattle ranch offers grand vistas, relaxation, and memorable experiences for all of its guests.

The beauty and freedom that comes with horseback riding is even more exhilarating in the tallgrass prairie.
The Flying W Ranch has three buildings offering accommodations for everything from family reunions to single getaways.
Catered meals are offered to complement your time at the ranch or your special occasion in the Flint Hills.
Join us for one of our special events or design your very own group event.


The ranch is based at our home, a 1890s homestead with a historic three-story red barn, nestled in the Cottonwood River Valley in Chase County, Kansas. The ranch normally has 50 horses, 250 cow-calf pairs, and 2,000 stocker cattle. We have been welcoming guests for the past several years to enjoy our beautiful scenery, wildlife, and to share in our rich ranching heritage.

Thank you for taking time to look through our website. We really appreciate it and hope you will come and see what makes a ranch vacation at the Flying W Ranch a one of a kind experience.
