Amache site

It is off of Highway 385/50 along the Santa Fe Trail. You can access the site by going west from Granada on Hwy 385/50 and turning south on CO-Rd 23 5/10. The main entrance is almost a mile, just past W. Amache Rd. The site is open during daylight hours, and tours are not required to visit. For an orientation, you may want to first visit the Amache Museum.

Main entrance: Kiosks, walking trail, and new Honor Roll Memorial

After almost a mile on CO-Rd 23 5/10, you will see three interpretive kiosk panels at the main entry gate to Amache. The panels give visitors an idea of what happened at the site. One panel is a bulletin board that is used to notify visitors of upcoming events or other important information. There is also a walking trail and picnic tables that the Amache Preservation Society maintains. Along this trail is the National Park Service sign designating the Amache site as a national landmark. Amache Preservation Society members traveled to Denver to buy the large stone that the sign is attached to and that visitors can see today. There is also a reconstructed Honor Roll Memorial that memorializes the men and women who served in the military during the war.
