Interesting but bring some Off!! Mosquitos are me alive!!

Definitely want to spray yourself with off or cutter before going out to the tracks. Lots and lots of Mosquitos there. The walk out was nice as the DAR have provided a nice path... read more

The trail is well maintained and is an easy walk. We were there early in the day and the sun was at an angle so that we could see the tracks. A beautiful peaceful setting to reflect on what once was .

Santa Fe Trail, I come from England so my knowledge of these trails is limited and mainly come from watching Gunsmoke and Bonanza in my early childhood. Interesting to see them in the flesh so to speak. They are still visible and I found it inspiring to think I was standing on the actual place all this happened. Check out... More

Living my life in Oklahoma, I knew about the significance of the Santa Fe trail. However, it's one thing to say, "This used to be here" and quite another to say, "Look here and see where history is still VISIBLE." The wagon ruts are still clearly visible to the naked eye (look for the change in the color of the... More

If you are looking for something to actually DO, you may be disappointed, but if you enjoy a wind swept prairie experience, with a little imagination, you can imagine yourself taken back in time. As I watched the beautiful grasses wave across the rolling hills and saw the deep ruts left by courageous families so long ago, I was awed... More

Definitely want to spray yourself with off or cutter before going out to the tracks. Lots and lots of Mosquitos there. The walk out was nice as the DAR have provided a nice path and plenty of information boards. The wagon ruts are difficult to make out but worth going out just to see the land and put yourself in...

Schedule a tour of the old Harvey House. Was very interesting and enjoyed it. There is a restaurant where the old Santa Fe Freight house was. They have good unique hamburgers. Was not able to stay for the show, but hear it what keeps the building in tack.

Visited one of the Santa Fe location markers and took a visitor out to see the Black Pool on our families property, homesteaded by my great grandparents in the late 1800's.

You can actually visit history which others can only read about. Stand there for a moment and imagine the challenges and struggles the settlers endured. Imagine the stories they told to pass the time during the long trip.

I love history and it is awsome to stand where so many wagon trains traveled. Had to walk up a small rise but once you got there you could see the tracks. It just makes you think about the people that rode across there and what they went through so long ago.
