US 400 across KS

We are thinking about getting to CO Springs via US 400 across KS - thru Wichita, Dodge City, etc. Haven't been on that road in over 30 years.

Anyone taken that route lately? How is the road? Any must sees or don't dos?

We did Hwy 50 from CO Springs to Dodge City and 54 (400) through Wichita and Fort Scott. All good road. There is a lot of history in Kansas and this route follows part of the Santa Fe Trail. Dodge City has a "recreated town" that is a little touristy but some good history. Fort Scott has an interesting Civil War fort and and a nice Gunn County park/camp ground. There are some interesting small towns along the way. Staying on the secondary roads, 50, 36, 30 are far more interesting than the interstate.

Yup - I’m with you. We do US and good state highways whenever we can.

I think I’ll do 54/400 this time and another trip 36.

I’ll report back on 400.

The Big Well

The Big Well in Greensburg is worth a visit. Also, this is an interesting town that was rebuilt after a Tornado hit the town.

March 2019, I went from LaJunta, boondocking in the Elks parking lot, followed by oil change and a fill up heading east. US 50 / 400 was smooth and fast with tiny shoulders. Fill up at La Junta and then a straight run to Dodge City. This follows the wagon train route and is marked accordingly. I continued east to I-70 and boondocked west of Kansas City.

Just came from La Junta last week stayed in Dodge City and continued on to Wichita. Roads are good not many big rigs. PM me if needed.

Nice route, for the most part

Iíve done that route several times and enjoyed it, with one exception ... there are several huge feed lots along the way and they are NASTY, both looking and smelling. Iím just saying.....
