Oregon Trail Ruts State Historic Site
Follow signs from the central Guernsey intersection.
Go south across North Platte River.

The Signature Ruts of the trail system are located at a place where terrain forced the emigrant wagons to cross a sandstone outcrop. Thousands of wagon wheels wore ruts into the soft stone to a depth of five feet in some places. Visitors can still see places where the wheel hubs rubbed against the rut walls.
