Indian trails played an important role in opening up the Ohio Country to exploration, trade, and settlement. Trails often determined the location of early settlements and military roads. Many of these trails generally followed the high ground between rivers and streams. In northern Ohio, beach ridges created by ancient glacial lakes provided natural paths for east-west travel. Today, some of Ohio's roads and highways follow these old routes.
When Ohio entered the Union in 1803, the state lacked a good transportation system.
