Trails in the Greater Kansas City Area

Our organization has been locating and marking the trail through the Greater Kansas City Area since the 1990’s which has led to the erection of 162 historic trail markers at trail crossings. Interpretative wayside exhibits have been placed at historic hard points of the trails. Our “Brown signs” indicate the hard points where the trails ran along today’s roads. The routes include the Fort Leavenworth to Fort Scott Military Road, the Santa Fe, Oregon, and California Trails including various branches from the State Line to Gardner Junction and from Fort Leavenworth to the Johnson/Miami county line.
