National Historic Trails-- Part 1

From good ol' Wikipedia.

The article mentioned nineteen trails, but didn't list them.

Here's the list.  An asterisk indicates that I have been on part of it.  I have not been on the full length of any of them.  All are designated National Historic Trails, but I am just listing the name, date established and length authorized:

1.  *Oregon, 1978, 2170 miles
2.  *Mormon Pioneer, 1978, 1300 miles
3.  *Lewis and Clark, 1978, 3,700
4.  Iditarod, 1978, 2,350
5.  Overmountain Victory, 1980, 275 miles

6.  Nex Perce, 1986, 1,170
7.  *Santa Fe, 1987, 1203
8.  *Trail of Tears, 1987, 2,200
9.  Juan Batista de Anza, 1990, 1200
10.  *California, 1992, 5,665

More to Come.  --RoadDog
