The rut site is located nine miles west of Dodge City on the north side of U.S. Highway 50. This site preserves one of the finest remnants of wagon tracks in existence along the entire trail.
The site is owned and managed by the Boot Hill Museum. Visitors are permitted to walk to the site of the parallel ruts. There are many interpretative signs and storyboards on the site. The wooded bridges mark the actual wagon ruts.
The Kansas Highway Department has provided ample turnout and parking area for easy access.
