I don't have much to offer as you can see getting information out of this area was nearly impossible. White men were not even supposed to be there. It was Indian land by treaty and hunting their buffalo was a sure to get the indians mad. Remember the battle of Adobe Walls?
I have been researching this Granada - Adobe Walls Trail for awhile now. It apparently left Granada going southeast and came to Bear Creek just over the Baca County Colorado - Stanton County Kansas line. From Bear Creek in Kansas, it must have had to have taken a much more southerly direction laving Kansas somewhere in the vicinity of the Morton County - Stevens County line. Adobe Walls is petty much due south from there crossing the No Man's Land (Oklahoma panhandle) into the Texas panhandle.
The other trail, the one to Dodge, was the famous one. The Adobe Walls Trail.
I hope these guys had some experience before trying this. Buffalo hunters were the only thing meaner than the cowboys who came to Dodge, that's why guys like the Mastersons and Earps were hired for lawmen at Dodge.
