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.
At this point, a branch of the Santa Fe Trail's Dry Route passed en route to Fort Larned. Following the north bank of the Pawnee River, the trail curved around the west side of the fort, crossed the stream, and entered the post near the southwest corner. Earlier, the Dry Route had followed the south bank of the river to the fort.
