From the beginning , the Arrowhead Trail was a " grass roots " effort including promotion by various chambers of commerce and volunteer construction by local citizens . However , it was Charles H . Bigelow , from Los Angeles , who gave it great publicity . During 1915 & 1916 he drove the entire route many times in his twin six Packard " Cactus Kate . " The trail , as seen behind you , was built in 1915 and completed the section between St . Thomas and Las Vegas . In its day it denoted a milestone of progress .
