This was a nice boardwalk going up the hill to look out over the Prairie. I wish I could see the wheel ruts better. There was explanatory signage that was informative. Someone had left flowers at several places along the walk. I wonder why? Maybe it was an anniversary or in homage to family antecedents who had come to this part of the country on wagon trains?

We've been stopping here for over 25 years on our trips to Colorado. The tracks have gotten harder to see and binoculars sometimes help. There is lots of information under a pavilion and a quarter mile trail you can walk with benches and more signs. Worth a stop if you're in the Dodge City area.

Located west of Dodge City, KS. Several boards with information are available near the road. A paved path leads out into the prairie and several more information boards can be found. There is also a sod path that will take you further into the pasture. Though time and elements have virtually erased the wagon ruts, it's still worth it to visit and stand where thousands of pioneers made their way west. FYI: I walked the sod path for a short distance and upon returning to the car could feel something crawling on me. After getting back to the hotel and undressing I picked at least a dozen ticks off of me and my clothing.

We decided to stop here and check out this site since there wasn't much else open in Dodge City. While it is interesting to visit the place where wagon trains used to come through so many years ago, the actual wagon ruts are really hard to see. I'm honestly not sure if what I saw was the wagon ruts but it was a nice little walk and there were informative signs everywhere to read so it wasn't a bad way to spend an hour. And it's free which is always a plus...
