City Park in Cimarron

      Cimarron, settled in 1878, got its name as the starting point at one time of the shorter Cimarron or dry route to Santa Fe. Here the Santa Fe Trail divided, one branch heading directly southwest, the other (present US-50) following the Arkanss River to Bent's Fort (near La Junta, Colorado), then south over Raton Pass.
