Cowgirls, you may want to add a wagon ride on the Oregon Trail to your bucket list. This amazing ride is one-of-a-kind. Experience what life was like during the mid-1800’s migration from Missouri to Oregon on this 2,200-mile trail. People flocked westward in search of a better life. Their journey wasn’t without hardship though! Soak up this historical event in the best way possible- with horses.
Start off your search with Historic Trails West in Wyoming. This company offers 5-day, overnight, and daytime treks along the same trails that the pioneers traveled. You can opt for a wagon or trail ride! Enjoy the sounds of creaking leather, wagon wheels crushing the sandy trail, and the smell of warm sage in the air. It’s one thing to read about history, but it’s a whole different thing to live it!
For the overnight experience, learn how to pitch your own tent and enjoy cooking on the dutch oven. There’s nothing quite like eating and sleeping in the wide open. Climb aboard the historic wagons and see the actual ruts of the Oregon, California, Pony Express, Mountain men, and historic Military Trails.
