Relive the wild and dangerous stagecoach days Saturday, August 16, during the National Historic Trails Interpretive Center’s Pioneer Trail Trek program, “Cheyenne-Deadwood Road- South.”
Travelers on the Cheyenne to Black Hills Road encountered the same struggles and successes as those who took more widely known western emigrant trails. Spanning the North Platte River at Fort Laramie to the Lusk rest area, this trip will explore historic structures, trail ruts and of course tales of the characters whom created road’s colorful lore.
This trail trek will depart from the National Historic Trails Interpretive Center at 8:00 a.m. and should return in the late afternoon.
Participation is free of charge but please wear appropriate clothing and bring sack lunches, drinks and sunscreen. Be prepared for inclement weather as the day unfolds. Transportation is not provided to sites and carpooling is encouraged!
