Pony Express Trail

Search Tooele Utah

Established in August 3, 1992. Beginning 30 miles south of Tooele, the historic Pony Express Trail extends west for 150 miles, covering small mountain ranges and rugged sagebrush terrain, to the Nevada border. The trail includes a designated cycling route, which crosses the Great Salt Lake Desert, as well as numerous other trail forks suitable for ATVs.

The National Park Service is currently developing a Comprehensive Management and Use Plan for the Pony Express National Historic Trail. When completed, it will describe the official auto tour route, list historic sites and cross-country segments, and make recommendations for resource protection, trail management and marking. Many of the sites and segments are on public land and are open to visitors. Others are located on private lands-please obtain the landowners permission before entry.
