Chisholm established a series of trading post in Oklahoma which supplied the route although he never used the trail himself to drive cattle to market.

Abilene,Texas is the place the chisholm ended
The Chisholm Trail started from Laredo on the Rio Grande. It went north near San Antonio, Temple, Waco, Fort Worth, through Oklahoma and on to Abilene Kansas. There were… a number of minor trails leading to the Chisholm trail. Since the land south of San Antonio is desert, that area did not support very many cows. Some writers consider that the trail began at San Antonio.
