The Pony Express Mail system is an important part of history, with much of the original route remaining. We visited four different stops on our two week dual sport motorcycle trip in five western states.

馬より一回り小さいポニーの背中に乗ってこの辺りを探索できるオススメアクティビティーです。また目線の高さも変わり違った景色を楽しめました。

Always heard of the pony express in school. Here is a pony express station. Since we heard so much about it one would have thought that it lasted "forever".....not true....was somewhat short-lived and replaced with better communications technology.

And, for those who were part of the pony express, it was a hard life.

We found ourselves looking for more scenery after visiting the Salt Flats. Didn't see horses or other animals, but pretty cool drive.. Took this road for awhile and it was nice landscape to see

Need to be patient with this one. Wid horses move a lot some days you don't see a single band. Other days you do. You need water and a 4 whee drive vehicle for this search. Also rock hounds check out Fish Springs.

This station is on the original trail and later Lincoln Highway. It is isolated with no services for many miles. It is accessible by auto but an SUV or 4X4 is recommended in the winter or stormy weather.

We have been to many historical attractions along the Pony Express Historical Trail.

The Pony Express was used to deliver mail by horseback. It extended from Missouri to Sacramento, California. It operated in 1859 and 1860 for 19 months.

There is still many historical events commemorating the trail, We enjoyed visiting the sites and trail in Utah.

This Drive through the Western Desert of Utah is not only historically important but also surprisingly picturesque. For those who are travelling from the Salt Lake City area, the route heading west typically starts after Cedar Fort and onwards towards Faust. Historians will appreciate a brief stop at the Fort. After Faust, be prepared to go off-road on long stretches of gravel road, dusty and washboard.

Best time to travel is spring and fall, summers are hot and winters are prone to storms. Although you can make this a full day’s drive, it is not uncommon for people to pull off along the way and camp. Having a full tank of fuel, spare tire and some tools, comes highly recommended. In addition to fuel, take plenty of food and water; vehicles have been known to breakdown or get stuck and people have become stranded for several days before receiving assistance. Know before you go, be prepared!

Simpson Springs is a popular camping area, where there is a historic site with a well preserved structure nearby. For most people who simply make this their destination, you made it, congratulations! In reverence to those who lost their lives along this route, be it known that you were more likely to have been killed as a station master, than if you were a rider; simply because you were a sitting target.

As for those of you who are more adventurous, the trail continues westward. Along the way, you are likely to see Antelopes and Wild Mustangs. For bug people, there are the Mormon Crickets and Tarantula Hawks. For geologists, there are fossils, gemstones and geodes; however these are not necessarily on the trail itself, but at other west desert locations accessible by the trail.

Fish Springs National Wildlife refuge is a wonderful oasis and notable for those who appreciate birds. Eventually you will reach Callao, an active farm community that has a number of historical dwellings. From here, you can travel north towards Gold Hill a mining district that is also inhabited. From here, you can continue through the mountains and eventually find Ibapah Road, a paved highway, which continues north towards Wendover, Nevada. There you can get a hotel and return to SLC via I-80.

Great Basin National Park, however is a great destination if instead you choose to head south from Callao. When you arrive at the interstate, go towards Baker, Nevada. The Park has some great camping, hiking about Wheeler Peak, to the peak or some lakes below. GRBA is also proud to feature Ancient Bristle Cone Pines and the Lehman Caves, a dissolution cave, similar to Timpanogos Cave. To return to SLC, head east towards Delta, Utah and eventually back to I-15.

So, whether you turn around at Simpson Springs, or venture north to Wendover or south to Great Basin, enjoy the picturesque vistas of blue sage, orange dusk and rocky silhouettes. This place is a desert, also known as Basin and Range topography. Please be prepared, not only for your own safety, but also to be inspired by the past and the present. Wishing you the best On the Road!

We like taking scouts out here for a fun campout. The outhouses are open and pretty clean. The water is turned off so be prepared. If you do some research ahead of time there is a geode bed you can explore which is very interesting.

Whether you are exploring off-road or by car, historic Pony Express route and Simpson Springs is a must see. There is camping available at Simpson Springs Campground, and plenty of land to roam.
