The Beattie cyclothem (site 8) is exposed on the north side of a road cut about 325 ft (100 m) west of milepost 317 on 1-70 in the center of NE¼, Sec.26, T.11S., R.8E., Riley County, Kansas (Fig. 1). If traveling eastward, continue to exit 318, pass under 1-70, and return to the road cut (Kansas law prohibits pedestrians from crossing divided highways). Vehicles should be parked off the pavement, and passengers should exit vehicles on the north side. Keep as far as possible from the traffic lane while examining the rocks.

The Cottonwood Limestone Member of the Beattie Limestone (site 9) is exposed on the north side of a road cut at milepost 272 on U.S. 54 about 0.3 mi (0.5 km) east of the Butler County line. The outcrop is near the north edge of SE¼, SW¼, Sec.3, T.26S., R.8E., Greenwood County, Kansas (Fig. 2). Vehicles should be parked on the south side of the highway where the old road enters the present highway.
