The four trails west

The Santa Fe Trail was what merchants and traders from Missouri took. The Oregon trail was for people settling on the Western frontier. The Mormon trail was a religious trail that the Mormons took for religious rights. The final trail was the California trail which was for gold seekers and farmers looking to make it rich or fresh farm land.
