'Talking Trails' project set on ND scenic byway

BISMARCK — A scenic byway in southwest North Dakota is getting signs with toll-free numbers that travelers can call to get information about sites of interest.

The Bismarck Tribune reports the Talking Trails program will be activated in June along the 108-mile Old Red Trail and Old Highway 10 route between Mandan and Dickinson. Spokeswoman Robin Reynolds says there are more than three dozen points of interest.

Reynolds says the route has a number of historical ties, beginning with the Fort Keogh Trail — the route Lt. Col. George Armstrong Custer and the Seventh Cavalry took to Montana in the late 1870s.

The $13,000 Talking Trails project is funded through a grant from the Bismarck Mandan Development Association. Morton and Stark counties and the eight communities along the route have contributed.
