Camp Horizon offers a different perspective on Kansas hiking. The terrain provides for a more challenging opportunity with 1000 feet of elevation change possible throughout the hike. If you’re looking for lots of ascending, descending, rocky pathways, the chance to climb a few boulders, some steep inclines, and some incredible views – you’ll really enjoy this hike. There are very few places like it in Kansas!
There are so many things that make this park exceptional. Over the past few years, I have spent more of my free time at this nature park than anywhere else; it is truly a hidden gem. Whether you are out for a short walk or a day hike, and whether you prefer paved paths or dirt trails, you’ll find something to love about Pawnee Prairie Park!
Rolling prairies, big skies, open spaces, and a feeling of serene isolation. Combine these things with bison bigger than your smart car and old historic buildings full of character, and you've got a great place to spend your day hiking!
