Scotts Bluff National Monument and the National Historic Trails Interpretive Center have teamed up to organize “Trail Trek: Spirit of the Pioneers” on Saturday, July 27th. This year’s Trail Trek will take
participants to several known pioneer grave sites, some on private property, and follow the historic Oregon Trail.
Participants will meet at Scotts Bluff National Monument, then caravan to Robidoux Pass, proceed west towards the Henry, Nebraska area with the final destination being at the Old Iron Bridge near Fort Laramie.
Due to the off-the-beaten path of this Trail Trek, four-wheel drive or high clearance vehicles are required. Interested participants without this type of vehicle are encouraged to carpool. Participants should be prepared with a sack lunch, sunscreen, bug spray and sturdy shoes.
Although participants can depart the trek at any time, the full itinerary will last until approximately 4:00 p.m. depending on
the weather and participation.
