Trail ruts and homestead

Emigrant wagons drove out of the treed oasis and back onto the desert at this location, which has trail rut remnants that can be seen on the ground. Diary accounts document hundreds of wagons a day, and thousands of head of livestock crossing through this place during July and August of the mid-1800s on their way to Oregon and California. A turn-of-the-century homestead can be seen in the background beyond the park. The Sublette County Historical Society hopes to have the trails and interpretive signs done and in place to open the park to the public in the summer of 2012.
