"Point of Rocks Morton County Kansas"
on the
Santa Fe Trail

     Point of Rocks, is eight miles north of Elkhart, Kansas on Kansas Highway 27 and about one mile west on a dirt road through the Cimarron National Grassland. This landmark is second in importance only to Pawnee Rock in Barton County, Kansas. It was a lookout along the Cimarron Valley for both Indians and traders, with one branch of the trail running between the rock and the river. This land mark remains as it was during the trail era, and it is still surrounded by grasslands, where many miles of Santa Fe Trail ruts can still be seen.
