The Outlaw Trail started at the Outlaw Caves in southern Saskatchewan, Canada, and wound it's way south through Sheridan County and as far south as Wyoming and beyond. The trail was in heavy use during Sheridan County's early days. Romantic stories abound concerning these famous outlaws who stole cattle and horses and occasionally robbed a bank or two, escaping and evading the law via the Outlaw Trail.
