Relive a dramatic part of the West's history as you travel the same trail that Pony Express riders covered over 100 years ago. You can stop at stations and modern interpretive sites along the Backcountry Byway where exhausted riders once rested before continuing on to complete their 1,800-mile run. You can extend your visit to the past with a night's stay at the campground and reconstructed station at Simpson Springs. The Pony Express Trail is a designated National Historic Trail and Backcountry Byway.
