Follow This .4-Mile Trail In Kansas To Unique Rock Formations

As part of the Santa Fe Trail, the Pawnee Rock Historic Site in Kansas originally served as a meeting point for Native American tribes in the area. Because these meetings sometimes led to battle, many bones have been found in this historical spot. And since Pawnee Rock was the halfway point between Missouri and Santa Fe, it was also a landmark for travelers taking this route during the 1800s and beyond.

Nowadays, visitors can stroll along Pawnee Rock Historical Site’s short and scenic trail and explore the rock formations along the path. There are monuments marking this region’s history and wildflowers for you to check out too.
