West of town about 9 miles. Coming from Dodge City, it's on the right side of the road. Nothing really denotes it from the road. There is a small loop you drive up, and a parking area not far from the highway. There was a tall silo or tower of some kind (on the left) we passed and the trail... 更多
Went by a little early in the morning, perhaps. Very difficult to see the ruts, but some could be made out a little farther away. Still, great to stand in a place where so many people passed by. Good view of the plains from this bluff.

Look for the small brown historical marker on the north side of the road, the signposts are still there but the sign is laying on the ground. There is a pull off that circles around. Read the markers and walk the walk to the end, reading... 更多
