Stop 10 - Point of Rocks

Native Americans possibly scouted for buffalo from this third-highest point in Kansas, and in 1541, Coronado’s expedition made note of the formation for future explorers. During the days of the Santa Fe Trail, Point of Rocks served as a major landmark.


At this point on the tour, exit Point of Rocks and turn right (E), retrace your path back to Hwy 27 where you will turn left (N), drive up the hill and arrive at Stop 11. It is 3.4 miles to Stop 11.
