Visit Website

The companion trail closely follows the existing trail remnants of the Santa Fe Trail and consists of a grassy trace across the prairie. Sagebrush and cacti have been removed to make the trail sufficiently evident to the hiker without noticeably altering the prairie vistas. This trail is easy to moderate. The terrain varies between primarily flat prairie land, occasional draws, and the relatively gradual incline up to and down from Point of Rocks. Biking, hiking, and horseback riding are allowed.
