Marking Macleod Trail

Bull train150

From 1870 to 1885 teams of oxen, or bull trains, moved goods that had arrived on steamboats on the Missouri River from Fort Benton to Fort Macleod. The goods were then transported every summer up the old Macleod Trail to Calgary. To mark the historic route, a group of volunteers began to erect markers in the early 1980s. There are now 17 wagon wheel markers along the trail. This exhibit tells the story of the glory years of the Macleod Trail before the coming of the railway and the dedication of the volunteers who preserve that history.
