Things To Know Before You Come
Ask permission before going on private land. Please respect your hosts' hospitality when you visit their sites. Leave everything as you find it. Obey signs, use designated parking areas, and limit your stay to the time necessary to appreciate the site. Don't use metal-detectors, dig at sites, collect artifacts, or remove anything. Many portions of the historic routes are on road rights-of-way.
