MISSION STATEMENTThe Great Western Cattle Trail Association – Kansas Chapter, is a non-profit organization whose mission is to preserve and promote the unique heritage and culture of the cattle drives up the Western Trail in the late 1800’s. We are working to create a positive economic impact and awareness for the entire Great Western Cattle Trail regions stretching from Mexico to Canada. It is our goal to market this trail as a heritage tourism destination. We expect this marketing to increase visitation to cultural and historic sites along the trail, bringing more money to each region. Partnering with other state chapters will provide economical opportunities for rural communities and regions in Western Kansas to preserve and promote the significance of the Trail. Join us in our efforts as we preserve and market the Great Western Cattle Trail.
