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 Original Dry Route
Forks in the Santa Fe Road Markers       Forks in the Santa Fe Road Text


At this point was Forks in Santa Fe Road, the original eastern terminus of the Santa Fe Trail's Dry Route which left the Arkansas River valley to pursue an upland course to the southwest. Subsequent to the establishment of Fort Larned, the eastern terminus of the Dry Route was relocated to a point two miles northeast of present Larned, Kansas. From that location, the Dry Route ran to Fort Larned and thence further to the southwest.
