Over the years we have received a lot of requests for this iconic American "trail".  This is TAP Partner Mark Hoffmann's specialty, and we know you'll gain a new appreciation of America's vast landscape and lore.  Last fall he covered the first part of the route (from Chicago to Oklahoma City).  This spring finish the fun from Oklahoma City to Santa Monica.  You'll want to book early because this  popular tour fills early.
What If?


What if

Here's a "What If?" relating to two upcoming Vanishing Trails Expeditions: the Old West Trail (which includes the Black Hills) and the Lewis & Clark Trail.  Although the Corps of Discovery didn't come within 200 miles of the Black Hills, they heard about them, and the gold that the Natives knew to be there.  Confirmation of such a discovery could have changed the course of American history, but it didn't happen until seventy years later.  Find out why.

Feel free to contact us with any questions at 800-888-8306.


We look forward to seeing you on the trail this season.


Happy Trails!
