To Original Route Sign

Three brown tall rectangular highway signs with white text saying: Pony Express Trail To Original Route and a triangular logo with orange and white and a blue pony rider.
 

These road signs guide visitors to segments of the original route (of the historic trail) that already have Original Route signs in place. These signs cannot be used if the historic route has not been signed with Original Route signs. They should ensure that the general public has sufficient guidance so they can easily follow and locate the original route.

Give careful thought to intersections and motorist decision points to make sure visitors are going in the right direction. If long distances of the original route occur, place enough signs along the road to ensure periodic confirmation of the route.
