Join Us & Preserve History! 

Old Spanish Pictographs

If you're interested in the historic trails that cross the West and especially Utah, as well as all the history and lore that surrounds them, we invite you to join with us. We actively preserve, protect, identify, study and visit these old trails. Our newsletter, meetings and activities are engaging, and to those with a yen to know more, they can bring the excitement of newfound knowledge and the thrill of walking in the steps of history.

Our members live in many states, are both old hands and new, some are history professionals and others dedicated amateurs. All have a love of the trails and derive great satisfaction from sharing their knowledge and enthusiasm with others.

To become a member you must first join our parent organization, the Oregon-California Trails Association, OCTA.  More information can be found at the association's Website: Oregon-California Trails Association.
