Help us preserve the historic Western States Trail

SwiningBridge 20131116 145734 Swinging Bridge Rebuilt BarbaraWhite33

A primary mission of the Western States Trail Foundation is to preserve the historic route taken by Paiute and Washoe Indians, Gold Rush explorers, Comstock hopefuls, and Express Riders of the Wells Fargo and Adams Express Companies. Today this route provides us with rewards of exploration, challenge, accomplishment, wilderness, nature and a bolstering of spirit for horsemen, hikers and runners alike.

In 1996 the Board of Governors of the Western States Trail Foundation determined the need to establish a permanent endowment fund to insure future funding of maintenance and improvements to the Western States Trail.  Please take a moment to read our 2014 endowment brochure and please give what you can to help preserve the Western States Trail.
