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.

JUNCTION OF THE FORT
LARNED MILITARY ROAD
AND THE WET ROUTE OF
THE SANTA FE TRAIL

Southwest of Fort Larned, a road departed the Santa Fe Trail's Dry Route in a southerly orientation to merge with the Wet Route at this point. This road allowed freight wagons which supplied Fort Larned to continue southwest along the Wet Route where water was always in abundance in contrast to the Dry Route where water was scarce.
