Bozeman Trail

gold montana

Bozeman Trail, route between Wyoming, and Montana used as a short-cut during the 1860s to reach gold fields in Montana and Idaho. The trail, named for John M. Bozeman, covered 600 mi (970 km). Native American attacks, protesting rampant European immigration, closed the trail in the late 1860s.
