Wagon Bed Springs

Kansas State Historical Marker
Grant County
K-25, Grant County
Roadside turnout, 12 miles south of Ulysses

      About two miles west were the Lower Springs of the Cimarron River, known today as Wagon Bed Springs. For early-day travelers on the famous Santa Fe Trail, the springs were an oasis in dry weather. Several shortcuts of the trail converged here, with the most popular route running between here and the Arkansas River near the present-day town of Cimarron.
