Official Trail Marker for the Mormon Pioneer National Historic Trail


Official Insignia, Designation.


This notice issues the official trail marker insignia of Mormon Pioneer National Historic Trail. The original graphic was developed as part of the Trail's comprehensive plan and finding of no significant impact in 1981. It was published by the Department of the Interior on March 14, 1983 in the Federal Register. The National Park Service has officially used this insignia—and subsequent variations— since then. It has been slightly redesigned in recent years so that lettering and framing match other National Trails System markers. The earlier designs which are still in use along the Trail are also protected from unauthorized uses by this notice. This publication accomplishes the official designation of the insignia now in use by the National Park Service.
