The article focuses on the search for historic trails in the Western U.S. It says that public lands agencies want to preserve historic traces which were altered by development such as the Old Spanish Trail and, Wyoming's South Pass. It adds that AECOM commissioned Alpine Archaeology and two firms to investigate 400 miles of the Old Spanish Trail in six states. According to archaeologist Jack Pfertsh, the trail has lesser marks because it was primarily utilized by trains of mules and horses.
