Big Tree's Raiding Ground
Road Trip Information

Highway 51 South is the quickest route to Decatur and passes the vicinity of Ranger Sowell's Keep Ranch Fight and also the tail end of Big Tree's 1868 Kiowa Raid. A great alternative route is to follow 677 from Saint Jo to Forestburg and on down 1655 past Sowell's Kenon Ranch Fight to Alvord then catching 287 to Decatur.

My favorite route is to remain on Highway 82 past Saint Jo to Nocona. Six miles west is the marker to the Old Red River Ranger Station and 17 miles north on FM 103 are two markers near the site of Old Spanish Fort.
