SHAWNEE TRAIL. Of the principal routes by which Texas longhorn cattleqv were taken afoot to railheads to the north, the earliest and easternmost was the Shawnee Trail. Used before and just after the Civil War,qv the Shawnee Trail gathered cattle from east and west of its main stem, which passed through Austin, Waco, and Dallas. It crossed the Red River at Rock Bluff, near Preston, and led north along the eastern edge of what became Oklahoma, a route later followed closely by the Missouri-Kansas-Texas Railroad. The drovers took over a trail long used by Indians in hunting and raiding and by southbound settlers from the Midwest; the latter called it the Texas Road. North of Fort Gibson the cattle route split into terminal branches that ended in such Missouri points as St. Louis, Sedalia, Independence, Westport, and Kansas City, and in Baxter Springs and other towns in eastern Kansas. Early drovers referred to their route as the cattle trail, the Sedalia Trail, the Kansas Trail, or simply the trail. Why some began calling it the Shawnee Trail is uncertain, but the name may have been suggested by a Shawnee village on the Texas side of the Red River just below the trail crossing or by the Shawnee Hills, which the route skirted on the eastern side before crossing the Canadian River.

Droving road, Drovers' Road


Explanation:
Not enough context for a truly accurate answer, but I suspect you have a reference to a very old institution...

Either of the two variants I have given is accceptable.

It's important to include the idea of a **Right of way**. These are mediaeval routes where animals were moved from summer to winter pastures and vice versa, and when the time came, to market, along clearly defined rights of way, which still exist in parts of Spain, where neglect has not permitted them to become absorbed into private estates, or built-up areas.

Incidentally, in Madrid, the calle Alcalá, Cibeles, and part of Gran Vía are some of the urbanised remains of one of the old droving roads, and is periodically occupied by sheep as a result!

Sheep used regularly to be driven to and fro, from southern France over the Pyrenees and down as far as Tarragona and beyond, in the Middle Ages and later.

Similar routes exist throughout Europe, even in smaller areas like Britain, and were reproduced in other countries like Australia and the USA when they were colonised. Think of Banjo Paterson, or in America, the Chisholm Trail, cattle droving into Kansas.

Even used for creatures as lowly as geese - see "His Worship the Goose Driver", Arnold Bennett.

By the way, the word is drOving/drOver, not drIving/drIver in this context.

drovers' road, droving road


Explanation:
Not enough context to be sure, but my guess is that you've got a reference to something with a long tradition behind it...

An important feature is the idea of a **right of way**.

In mediaeval times, and before, and since, animals were moved from summer to winter pastures, and vice versa, and when the time came, off to market, along well-defined routes, which even had facilities like pens and rudimentary accommodation for the drovers along them, and these rights of way still exist where they haven't been absorbed into private estates or been urbanised out of existence. There were drovers' roads all over Europe, even in smaller areas like Britain, and then they were exported to other countries like Australia and the US when they were colonised.

Just think of Banjo Paterson, and in the US, the Chisholm Trail and moving cattle down to Kansas.

In Madrid, calle Alcalá, Cibeles, and parts of Gran Vía are the urbanised remains of one of these droving roads.

In the Middle Ages, sheep were driven to and fro, from southern France over the Pyrenees, and down as far as Tarragona, and well beyond.

In Spain there was a special royal commission to look after them.

Even more lowly beasts like geese followed these trails - see "His Worship the Goose Driver", by Arnold Bennett.

The word is drOving/drOver, not drIving and drIver in this context.
