Location

Amache sign. Photo courtesy Kirsten Leong.Amache is located in southeastern Colorado about a mile and a half west of the town of Granada and half an hour drive from the Kansas border. 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 entrance is found just past W. Amache Rd.

Kiosks

Three interpretive kiosk panels are located 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.
