A National Pony Express Association rider pauses near Simpson Springs in the West Desert of Utah on the Pony Express Trail. The Trail passes through some very remote places.

Food and lodging vary greatly along the Pony Express National Historic Trail. Some segments of the trail pass through small towns, cities, or may lie in vary sparsely populated areas across the country. Plan your route by using the interactive map on the Places to Go page and then view our Links and Resources pages to find related travel councils and tourism boards if you need assistance locating lodging along your route. We do not have any affiliation with food or lodging businesses and therefore cannot provide recommendations.
