I hope someone can help with this.

I am interning for Grandfather Mountain State Park.  All of the park trails have been GPSed as polylines.  We just put up new trail markers along all of the trails and GPSed those as point data.  I am trying to find some way to measure the distance each trail marker is from the trail head.  They are using this data for 911 database purposes.  I am using ArcGIS 10.  Does anyone have any suggestions on how to do this without manually doing it with the measure tool?  Any help would be great!
