Indian Rock Park
Written by KWUStudentMedia on July 22, 2019
When first getting to Salina, I was sad a lot because I thought that I would have to go way far out of my way in order to go fishing or sit by some water or anything like that. It wasn’t until I overhead some people saying that they had workouts at Indian Rock Park that I decided to check it out and what I saw was simply amazing. The fishing, the Hiking, the view everything just swept me off my feet.
Indian Rock Park is something so beautiful that I actually gasped the first time that I saw it. The running bodies of water and a walking trail that is 1.2 miles long. Sometimes you will even see Kansas Wesleyan University athletes out there doing some training for their sports. I think that this place is definitely one of the most beautiful things about Salina. They have two waterfalls that lead into the Smokey Hill River.
When I first got to the park I went into the entrance that leads to the top of the hill. When you are at the top of the hill, you can see a lot of Salina from a different view. That is where most people start their hike or some people like to just sit on the steps and look because the view is just that amazing. I would bring some bug repellent though!
I found out that Indian Rock Park has a lodge that can be rented out for parties or events and I think I might be looking into that soon and I encourage others to as well because this is a sight that needs to be seen in person!
