Home to the Guardians of the Santa Fe Trail Discover a complete and authentic army post from the 1860s -1870s! This well-preserved fort on the Santa Fe Trail shares a tumultuous history of the Indian Wars era. The sandstone constructed buildings sheltered troops who were known as the Guardians of the Santa Fe Trail.
My son and I did this walk in early October 2015. The weather was great. The walking trail was in great shape, and goes around the post's existing buildings. Great view of the fields.
The site and the walk itself are well worth the time invested.
