The Bunker Hill section of the upper part of the Graneros Shale, Greenhorn Limestone, and of the lower part of the Carlile Shale is along the east side of Bunker Hill-Luray Road (Kansas FAS 47) about 4.5 mi (7.2 km) north of 1-70, along the center of the west line of Sec.18, T.13S., R.12W., Russell County, Kansas (Fig. 1). The top of the section is at the intersection with the unpaved side road to the east at an elevation of 1,790 ft (546 m); the base of the section is about 0.5 mi (0.8 km) north at an elevation of about 1,700 ft (518 m). Safest parking is on the side road near the top of the section (Fig. 1T).

Vehicles traveling on 1-70 should exit at the Bunker Hill exit (exit 193) and travel 4.5 mi (7.2 km) north through Bunker Hill to Sec. 18. The Bunker Hill exit is about 9 mi (14 km) east of Russell.
