The Bedlam Ruts are a fine stretch of Oregon Trail ruts and swales that visitors can walk. This Trail segment is on 40 acres of undeveloped public lands jointly managed by the Bureau of Land Management and the National Park Service (Ft. Laramie National Historic Site).
Location (west of Fort Laramie National Historic Site)
The setting is natural and quiet. Onsite interpretive signs tell the story. Reaching the site requires driving on an unpaved road that is usually suitable for passenger sedans when dry.
