Maxwell Wildlife Refuge near Canton, Kansas is home to one of the few surviving wild buffalo herds. As of January 2016 there were about 20 buffalo and 85 elk on the refuge. Each fall there is an auction of surplus buffalo.
It began in 1859, when a small herd of buffalo were driven into the area around the Maxwell homestead. The Maxwell family wanted to preserve a piece of prairie, with a roaming herd of buffalo, for future generations and in 1943, the Henry Maxwell estate donated 2,560 acres of land to the Kansas Forestry, Fish, and Game Commission for the creation of the Maxwell Wildlife Refuge dedicated to bison and other prairie species.
Public access to the Maxwell Wildlife Refuge includes occasional tram tours, horse back rides in spring & fall (must have own horse) and the 50 year old observation tower where some of these photos were taken. Special events at Maxwell Wildlife Refuge include the Prairie Days festival on the first weekend in June, and the Mountain Man Rendezvous on the Prairie on the first Friday and Saturday of October.
Fishing and primitive camping are available at nearby McPherson State Fishing Lake.
Welcome to Chisholm Trail Rides, where we offer you a unique, personalized riding experience.
We offer lessons for both children and adults, and open trail riding.
We are by appointment only, allowing us to focus on the individual, or a group, and give a personalized experience.
Our riding trail is not following the leader, it is open trail riding. This allows us to ride to the level of our rider, whether it’s a walk, trot or canter.
We have horses of all different levels and all different breeds, including gaited horses.
We cater to the rider who has never ridden a horse before, and also to the rider who is just getting back into riding, or rides frequently. We ride both English and Western.
One of our biggest complaints is that our riders are having trouble getting in contact with us. This is because of our personalized riding style. The best way to contact us is by texting 214-584-8698, or call us at 469-406-5864. We also have an email address at email@example.com.
