Google Maps

 

The California Trail Interpretive Center in Elko Nevada has provided a series of Google maps showing the locations of many of the Trails West markers. Be advised that many of the markers are in remote locations and may be far from fuel, food, water, etc. Additionally, many may require a high-clearance or 4WD vehicle to safely drive to them, and some are located on private property. Your best guide to them are the guidebooks referenced below.
