Trail Overview

In the late 19th century, cattle were driven from Texas ranches to railheads in Kansas via the historical Chisholm Trail. On this route you will pass the Chisholm Trail Museum, cross the Brazos River within 8 miles of where the cattle and cowboys crossed before the lake was built, pass multiple Chisholm Trail ruins and historical markers. This route can offer water crossings during the spring, along with multiple camping locations that range from private ranch fields to state park accommodations.


Most is county-maintained chip seal and gravel with an occasional water crossing. Water depths change during rain accumulation.
