A complete section of the Fort Hays Limestone Member occurs within roadcuts along Kansas 24, 2.4 mi (3.8 km) west of Stockton (Stockton 7½-minute Quadrangle) in NE¼Sec.21, T.7S., R.18W., Rooks County, Kansas (Fig. 1). At this locality, a series of three roadcuts occurs within a 0.25-mi (0.4 km) stretch of highway. Stratigraphically higher beds of the Fort Hays crop out at the east end of the exposures. By utilizing all three outcrops, most beds of the unit can be examined near road level with a minimum of climbing.
