The Great Western Cattle Trail began around 1876. While not as well known as the Chisholm Trail, the Great Western actually moved more longhorns, an estimated 6-7 million to the northern markets. The last cattle drive on the Great Western Trail was in 1894, when 9,000 head of cattle were driven to South Dakota. Today, the Trail roughly parallels US Hwys. 183/283 N. The Great Western Cattle Trail was the setting for the novel and TV Show, "Lonesome Dove."
