Rising fifty to sixty feet above the surrounding terrain, Pawnee Rock served as an important landmark for travelers on the Santa Fe Trail, marking the halfway point of the long journey. This Kansas State Historic Site invites visitors to stand atop the pavilion for a 360-degree view of the Arkansas River Valley, read exhibits about the area’s significance, and enjoy a picnic at a covered table.
