The trail along the Cimarron River was one of the routes west for wagon trains of early settlers. Step back in history by taking the Dry Cimarron Scenic Byway in Union and Colfax counties. This trip may be taken in one pack-filled day or two leisurely days. This is an excellent trip to take with children, with many ingredients to make the trip educational, fun, and moderately priced. A child can see actual Santa Fe Trail wagon ruts, wander through an old mining camp, see dinosaur tracks and walk into the crater of a volcano.
