We saw the trail online. Drove out to it. It’s deserted. There is zero maintenance. The benches are broken. You walk up to the top of the hill. Look at a couple wagon tracks then walk back. It’s a...

To see where the wagons rolled off the pioneers over the prairie was kinda cool. Boy they had it tough searching for a new life. We are so lucky.

Pretty cool to walk across history. Recommend looking at a satellite picture on google maps to see the tracks. Sadly, the place is neglected but still worth the visit.
The 21 year old version of me stopped here on my first road trip across the country in March of '81. The prairie grass hadn't started growing for the season yet so the tracks were visible, but yikes it was windy, cold, and miserable. I think I remember it being a muddy path back then and not a nice walkway like now. Fast forward to October 2020, 39 years and 20-ish cross country trips later to the second time I came through central Kansas with a "get off the beaten path" attitude. Seeing that I was going to pass close to the Santa Fe Trail site and Dodge City I decided to roll through and see how much they've changed in four decades. Answer: the Santa Fe Trail site now has a nice, partially, slightly elevated walkway and a covered display area with several interpretive info boards. The weather was perfect this time, still with the ever-present wind but sunny, warm, and dry. The prairie grass was still thick from the summer growing season and the tracks were not visible, at least without leaving the walkway. Even so, it was worth the stop to be standing out on the prairie at such an historic site. Recommended if you're in the area. Dodge City has changed quite a bit since '81, but that's another review.
