Takanoah's Hill follows trails 113 and 123 to the northeast reaches of Kansas Rocks Recreational Park. The trail can be run as an out-and-back or combined with a couple of moderately steep trails to create an entire loop around the scenic northeast boundary of the park. Starting at trail 103, Takanoah's Hill crosses a small creek, passes the popular Bear Trks trail, and then snakes its way through small pine trees and grass fields before turning east and sharply climbing a long gradual grade covered in golfball-sized rocks. At the top of the incline, you will encounter the only obstacle along the trail, a short 14'' ledge with a complete bypass around one side. This is an excellent trail for beginners and highly recommended for any high clearance 4-wheel drive vehicle.
Kansas Rocks Recreation Park is open on weekends, with varying hours depending on the day and the time of year. Annual passes can be purchased online, while day passes must be purchased at the time of visit.
Camping is not permitted on the trails, but camping is permitted near the office with 24 primitive camping sites, 24 RV slots, and cabin rentals. You can make reservations directly online. Amenities include fully plumbed bathrooms, a shower house, fire pits, covered pavilions, picnic tables, and electricity in the RV area.
