Arrowhead Trail Joins Lincoln Road

― from Automobile Topics, December 2 1916.

 

By the reclaiming and the reconstruction of the old Arrowhead Trail in Utah, a new tributary has been opened to the Lincoln Highway. The work was completed this month and was tested a few days ago by the engineer in charge of construction, Charles A. Bigelow, who made the first trip over the new route in a Chevrolet touring car. The route was declared perfect for pleasure car travel at all points. The new motor-path runs through a picturesque part of the Far West, along the route of the Old Mormon Path, and leads past old forts and pioneer ranch houses. The trail at one point passes the ruins of the first Finnish settlement in America.
