Take a ride on the Pony Express Trail

The Pony Express National Historic Trail goes through BLM-managed lands in California, Colorado, Nevada, Utah, and Wyoming. The Pony Express National Historic Trail is the route where young men on horseback once carried the nation’s mail across the country between 1860 and 1861. The horse-and-rider system became the United States’ most direct and practical means of east-west communications before the telegraph, delivering mail in the unprecedented time of ten days.
