K-99 is a state highway in Kansas that runs 233 miles (375 km) north–south through the eastern part of the state. K-99 has its southern end south of Chautauqua where it crosses the Oklahoma border and becomes State Highway 99 (SH-99). Its northern terminus is near Summerfield at the Nebraska state line . This route was originally K-11.

A long section of the highway (north and south of Wamego, Kansas) is named "Road to Oz Highway" in honor of The Wizard of Oz.

Flint Hills, Greenwood County, Kansas along K-99

South of Emporia, two-lane Highway 99 once again enters the Flint Hills, heading past the small town of Olpe, Kansas through the remaining part of Lyon County. It then enters Greenwood County where it passes the towns of Madison and Hamilton. It intersects with Highway 54 and jogs west for a short distance. The highway continues south through Elk and Chautauqua counties, arriving at the Oklahoma boarder. The route is sparsely populated and characterized by mixed grass of the rolling Flint Hills.
