Great Western Cattle Trail
The Great Western Cattle Trail was used in the 19th century for movement of cattle to markets in the East. The trail was also known as the Western Trail, the Dodge City Trail, or the Old Texas Trail.
The Great Western Trail began at Bandera west of San Antonio and passed near Buffalo Gap and Abilene, in western Texas, and continued on north of Dodge City, Kansas to Ogallala, Nebraska and Belle Fourche, South Dakota. It ran west of and roughly parallel to the Chisholm Trail.
