Frequently Asked Questions



Where can I obtain a map and brochure for the Pony Express National Historic Trail?

Trail brochures may be obtained from a number of locations, including the intermountain national trails system office in Salt Lake City, Utah. The contact page has information for writing or calling the office.

Many museums and visitor centers along the trail also have these same brochures. The Links and Resources page will provide a sample of some of these sites along the trail.

Do you have educational materials for teachers?

The national trails system office has no educational staff. It is charged with administration of the trail and works with partner organizations and private land owners to preserve what trail resources remain and provide educational opportunities at those sites.

There is a series of Auto Tour Route Interpretive Guides that are being developed on a state by state basis for travelers following the trail along those highways and roads that approximate the old trail route. These may be downloaded as Adobe Acrobat PDF documents from the link in the Plan Your Visit section of the site, or from state travel and tourism centers. These guides are a work in progress, so not all states have been completed.
