Mountain Biking the Pony Express Trail

An adventure through time!

Studd Pyles and I took advantage of an unseasonably warm November day to ride a section of the Pony Express/Oregon Trail from east of Willie’s Meadow to the Sweetwater River.

Western etiquette – close the gate behind you.

The wind was howling and the sun was starting to dip low in the sky. Finding a fully stocked and clean outhouse was a real treat.

Sweetwater River. I’ve spent a lot of time on different sections of the Oregon Trail in Fremont County, but not in the late fall. We flushed an immature bald eagle off the river when we passed through.
