Mark your calendars for Saturday, June 1, 2019.
Our three trails groups in the area, MRO/SFTA, Trails Head Chapter of OCTA, and KCAHTA will be sponsoring a joint bus tour to commemorate and honor National Trails Day. The tour bus will leave from Independence, MO and we will travel down the Santa Fe Trail to the site of Old Franklin which is across the Missouri River from present day Boonville, MO. After a brief stop there we will proceed on into Arrow Rock for a tour of the town, the Arrow Rock Visitors Center, Rich Lawson’s Arrow Rock Ferry Landing, and a great luncheon at the J Huston Tavern on Main Street.
The driving tour will be narrated by our own Ross Marshall who has many years of experience in providing outstanding and informative bus tours along all of the trails. Ross will provide much related information of events and the lives of the people living along the trail during its early years.
The bus will return to Independence by early evening.
More details of this special event will be in future newsletters and flyers from each of the organization. Remember, seating is limited on the bus so you need to get your reservation in and paid for once the details are published.
