Mormon Pioneer Trail

Mormon Pioneer Trail Professional Review and Guide

"The Donner Party blazed this historic trail in 1846, followed by 70,000 Mormon pioneers from 1847 to 1868. The trail also served as a leg of the Pony Express route. Still, for all its history, this section of the trail remains an inviting, tranquil, and exceptionally beautiful path through the woods of a gentle canyon.

It’s most alluring in late spring and early fall. If you can do only a short portion of the hike or a round-trip, choose the quieter, more remote 4-mile section from Mormon Flat to Big Mountain, where your chances of sharing the trail with wildlife are increased."
