The Southern Trails Chapter of OCTA is a group of people dedicated to the study, preservation, and enjoyment of emigrant trails across the southwestern United States. Our chapter territory covers virtually the entire region of the southern route trails , which passed through Oklahoma and Texas to Santa Fe and El Paso, New Mexico, then continued through northern and southern Arizona to California (see “Trail Map” on this website). Our members are dedicated to the study and preservation of the historic trails comprising southern route.
Our membership is comprised of everyone from professional historians to folks that just like to learn about the historic emigrant trails. There are opportunities to learn about trail locations, mark and map the trails and perform in-depth research of your own. We invite you to join us, share your passion, help us preserve, and make new friends with similar interests.
