The inaugural Outlaw Trail Scenic Byway Trail Ride will be held on Saturday, May 21st and Sunday, May 22nd at Fort Niobrara National Wildlife Refuge and Government Canyon near Valentine.
The specific location of the ride will be to Casterline's Hog Ranch AKA Casterline's Bar. Here you'll learn the story of the attempted robbery, death of Johnny Bordeau and cowboy Wild Bill and the subsequent murder of Lt. Cherry.
This is a no-fee ride, but donations may be made to the byway organization. Pre-registration is required by May 13th. The ride is limited to 45 participants so call early and reserve a spot. All riders will receive a commemorative Outlaw Trail scarf and have an opportunity to purchase the new byway book of outlaw history Legends and Lore Along the Outlaw Trail.
The goals of this and subsequent rides are to provide riders with the experience of first-hand discovery of the Niobrara River Valley, enjoy with fellow riders the beautiful and diverse landscape of the area, and gain an appreciation of local outlaw history. Any funds raised will be used in support of the byway's effort to publish their book about the outlaws who roamed the trail in days gone by and to create interpretive information for specific outlaw sites.
So join the gang and ride along as we explore Nebraska Outlaw Trail. For more information call Al Brock at 402-376-1164.
