Wet/Dry Routes Markers

With their indepth research of the Santa Fe Trail, the Wet/Dry Routes Chapter felt some sites and trails needed more information. With this in mind the Chapter has placed in prominent locations along the Santa Fe Trail, "Interpretive Markers" to do just that. On these pages you will find a photo of the markers and the text placed on them.

THE DRY ROUTE OF THE
SANTA FE TRAIL

North of this point one mile, the Santa Fe Trail's Dry Route ran southwest to merge with the Wet Route at the Caches, two miles west of present Dodge City. At a later date, the Dry Route ran one mile south of this point to merge with the Wet Route one mile east of Fort Dodge, now the Kansas Soldiers Home. The Wet Route followed the Arkansas River ten miles south of this location.
