"Middle Springs"
on the
Santa Fe Trail

     Middle Spring is eight miles north of Elkhart, Kansas on Kansas Highway 27 and about one mile west on a dirt road through the Cimarron National Grassland to a small enclosed park on the north side of the road. After Lower Spring, Middle Spring was the next reliable water source for travelers in the Cimarron Valley. This made it a major stopping point and campsite on the Santa Fe Trail.
