Weskan, Kansas: Mt. Sunflower: Highest Point in Kansas

4,039 feet above sea level. The joke is that this remote spot is just as flat as any other in Kansas -- it's just the highest flat spot. But it does have a nice sculpture and sign for photos.
Address:
Rd Wa-N3, Weskan, KS
Directions:
From US Hwy 40, drive either 1.5 miles east of the Colorado-Kansas line, or 23.5 miles west from Wallace (For a westbound visual reference, you'll pass big grain elevators on the right in the hamlet of Weskan; drive three miles further). Turn north onto Rd Wa-N3 (an unmarked road). Drive north 11 miles. Turn left. Drive one mile west. Turn right at the Mt. Sunflower sign. Drive a half-mile north to the monument.

Mount Sunflower. Mt. Sunflower: Highest Point in Kansas

Awe-inspiring vista with a pleasant breeze on a hot day. The sign at the entrance was blown down (Did I say breeze?). If you go too far past it, a rancher's sign sends you back half a mile.

Mt. Sunflower. Mt. Sunflower: Highest Point in Kansas

Wasn't too sure what to expect, but this "monument" was absolutely worth the 10 mile drive (on a dirt road) from US 40. As mentioned, the road name is unmarked but state signs mark it clearly so it's hard to miss. It's also marked from Highway 27 if you wanted to venture to it from the east.
