Western Trails Scenic and Historic Byway
|Photo by Ben Prepelka
Nebraska’s Western Trails Scenic and Historic Byway retraces the footsteps of 70,000 Mormons and thousands of other pioneers that followed the Platte River to the West. This main street of America, also known as the Oregon Trail and the Mormon Trail, established the route for the Pony Express and the Union Pacific’s Trans Continental Railroad.
