Tuttle Creek Site, AWW Tour #3 • Riley County

Saturday, Sep 26th, 2015 @ 1:45pm
Spillway Marina Road • Manhattan, KS • Map

We leave the previous site at 1:45pm and will arrive at this site at about 2:00 for those meeting at the site. This is a very accessible and easy-walking area. There are a variety of ecosystems (woods, prairie, wetland) in a relatively small site with a plethora of blooming plant species. We will start at the end of the drive. Directions from Kansas State University: Meet on the south side of the parking lot (D1) immediately west of old Memorial Stadium (one block west of the Student Union). Proceed north on Denison Avenue and turn right on Kimball Avenue. At the intersection of Kimball and U.S Highway 24 (also called Tuttle Creek Blvd), turn left (north). Proceed 3.5 miles to the intersection of Kansas Highway 13 and U.S. Highway 24. Turn right on Kansas 13 and proceed across the dam. After you cross the spillway, you will come to an intersection. Turn left onto “Spillway Marina Road.” Shortly you will see a driveway on the left. There is a sign “Victory Drive” “Home of K-State Crew.” Go through the white gate up to the top of the hill where you can park.
