                                         REPORT

                                         [To accompany S. 2876]
                            [Including cost estimate of the Congressional Budget Office]
                    The Committee on Energy and Natural Resources, to which was
                  referred the bill (S. 2876) to amend the National Trails System Act
                  to provide for the study of the Pike National Historic Trail, having
                  considered the same, reports favorably thereon without amendment

                                             PURPOSE
                    The purpose of S. 2876 is to amend the National Trails System
                  Act to authorize the study of the Pike National Historic Trail to as-
                  sess its suitability and feasibility for potential addition to the Na-
                  tional Trails System.
                                      BACKGROUND AND NEED
                    The proposed Pike National Historic Trail follows the expedition
                    of Zebulon Pike, a U.S. army officer and explorer. In 1806, Pike's
                    expedition embarked from St. Louis, Missouri, as Pike led a 20-
                  man exploring party 2,000 miles to Minnesota. He was then dis-
                  patched southwest to explore Spanish territory and established an
                  outpost near present-day Pueblo, Colorado, as his party encoun-
                  tered the Rocky Mountains. Unable to scale a mountain peak now
                  famously named Pike's Peak, the party proceeded south to north-
                  ern New Mexico. The party was apprehended and charged with il-
                  legal entry into New Mexico by Spanish officials, escorted across
                  Texas, and finally released in Louisiana, at the Spanish-American
                  border. In all, the expedition traversed seven present-day states,
