From 1821 to 1880, the Santa Fe Trail was a major commerce and travel route from Independence, MO to Santa Fe, NM. The trail took traders many weeks to traverse in often inhospitable conditions. Today visitors to the park can see trail evidence and in the summer months, take a ranger-guided tour of ruts and a structure that was a popular stage stop on the trail.
