The Ozark Trail was a network of locally maintained roads and highways that predated the United States federal highway system. The roads ran from St. Louis, Missouri, to El Paso, Texas, over a series of routes.[1] These roads were maintained by both private citizens and local communities. In one case, however, the US government was directly involved; it built the Ozark Trail Bridge in 1925 over the South Canadian River between Newcastle, Oklahoma, and Oklahoma City, as the first federal highway project built in Oklahoma.

These roads comprised the major highway system in the region until U.S. Highway 66 was built in the 1920s. In Oklahoma, portions of the section-line roads between Anadarko and Hobart are still referred to as "The Old Ozark Trail."

Contemporary online references of the term "Ozark Trail" for this road include:
