Hillsdale State Park is only minutes away from the 2 million-plus people of the greater Kansas City area. It’s a place where recreational opportunities seem endless.
The 31-mile Saddle Ridge equestrian trail is part of 40 miles of trails that can keep hooves, bike tires or boots churning for days. Dozens of miles of Hillsdale Reservoirs shoreline offer good angling.
The park’s public shooting range is one of the safest and quietest in the Midwest.
More importantly are innumerable places to camp, picnic, hike or simply relax in solitude. It’s often hard to remember you’re just minutes away from the big city.
