    From nearby Fort Terrett, this road in 1852 led south to Fort Clark and north to Fort McKavett. Selected mainly because it had water available, it served as a route for freight and mail, 1868, when forts were reactivated. Over it went troops, supplies, a few immigrants and pioneer ranches. It was noted also for passage of forays of Colonel Ranald MacKenzie against the hostile indians to the northwest. After forts were abandoned in 1883, ranchers drove cattle to market over parts of the road. (1966)
