Mapped this out with OB member "BikeHauler". I've lived at both the north and south end of Kansas' Flint Hills and have spent a lot of time traversing in between. The north end starts at the KDOT station off of I70 at HWY 99. Then heads south through the Flint hills. The KDOT station is a safe place to meet up or leave vehicles. If you need gas at the start, head into Alma. There is a gas station at the south end of town. The only gas on the trail is in Strong City/Cottonwood Falls and Cedar Vale. The trail ends at Hewins Park in Cedar Vale. Camping is free.
The route is mostly well maintained gravel roads with long stretches of minimum maintenance and worn out dirt. There are several water crossings throughout and any rainfall may make some portions impassable. Otherwise, nearly any stock vehicle shouldn't have much trouble getting all the way through.
