NE Osage County
The Black Hawk Trail is located primarily on the north side of Pomona Lake. The Black Hawk Trail passes through wooded, riparian and grassland areas and is approximately 21 miles in length. The blue trail generally follows the higher elevation government boundary line and the orange trail a lower elevation trail near the lake shoreline, which is more subject to the effects of flooding. Trails marked with white connect the trails and areas flagged with yellow indicate difficult areas of travel. The trail is marked with posts or stakes where it crosses meadows.
Primitive equestrian campsites are located in Cedar Park and include 7 campsites, 6 corrals, fire rings and access to a privy type toilet. Cedar Park campers and trail users will need to bring water as this is a primitive campground and water is not present. Day parking is available near the Black Hawk trailhead located near the 110 Boat Ramp, the parking lot east of the Cedar Park equestrian camp sites, and near the intersection of 197th & Berryton Road (from Hwy 75, go east on 189th, south on Berryton Rd.)
