Midwest Living Review

This 167-mile route connects Fort Leavenworth in the north to Fort Scott in the south then continues to the Oklahoma border.

Trace Civil War history (and admire migrating birds) as US-69 winds south from Kansas City along the Kansas-Missouri border, through historic sites and small towns for nearly 170 miles to Oklahoma. Wetlands and forests fill the Marais Des Cygnes Wildlife area. The town of Fort Scott, founded more than 150 years ago and home to the Fort Scott National Historic Site, holds October ghost tours.
