Help 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.

The Western States Trail is open!

FORESTHILL…..The Forest Service has opened the Western States Trail which was damaged in the American Fire. The order terminating the closure of the WS trail between Last Chance and Swinging Bridge has been signed. The WS trail is open with the exception of the Swinging Bridge which is still closed. Trail goers should use discretion in choosing whether or not to cross the NFMF American River. If you do, you are doing so at your own risk. Thanks to all who helped get this trail open.
