Oregon Trail Map

As we learn about the Oregon Trail, you are welcome to use this Oregon Trail map from the National Park Service.

To navigate the map, use the + symbol in the lower right corner to zoom in.  Scrolling or sweeping will move the map up/down and left/right.

On the map, the Oregon Trail route is noted by a bold red line.  Black dots with bold black text note locations along the trail route.  The red text describes important points along the trail route.

These map features are layered over present day state names and highways noted in light gray.  Yellow dots with black text note present day cities.

The political map below can help us understand the route in the context of current state boundaries.
