The California Trail Heritage Alliance was initally formed to support the National Historic California Trail Interpretive Center (“Center”), which itself began as a private citizens' grassroots effort to establish an Interpretive Center with the objective of developing an understanding and appreciation of the thousands of pioneers who traveled along the California Trail from the 1840s to 1870s). The The current mission of the California Trail Heritage Alliance, based in Elko, Nevada, is to enhance the California Trail experience for our community, visiting public, and future generations through education, outreach and trail preservation.
  The Center, built in 2011-2012 with donations from the Elko community, Elko County, State of Nevada, and federal funding, is managed by the BLM. It is located at the junction of the historic Hastings Cutoff and the main California Trail, at Hunter Exit 292, just west of Elko and two miles from the Greenhorn Cutoff of the trail.
