  • I had fond memories of seeing the wagons from when I was a kid so I wanted to share that same experience with my wife and daughter when we went through here. I was delighted to see that they are still there and in good repair as well.
  • There is a fantastic hiking trail from the top to the bottom. If you want you can hike up but, we selected the ranger ride up and then walk down! Smooth trail
  • Beautiful view of the valley area. Nice quiet place close by to everything so you can take a lunch up and enjoy!
  • Make sure you leave yourself a good amount of time when you visit this amazing national monument. In this place you can see wagon ruts from so many of the trails that crossed America. In this spot the pony express, mormon trail, Oregon trail, and California trail all converged. Be sure to take time to hike up the bluff instead of driving. It's not a very long or hard hike and well worth the effort. Also be sure to stop in at the museum once it re opens. The Rangers who are posted here really love the area and have an amazing amount of knowledge to share. Be sure that you tap into this before you watch the information of video.
  • Great little surprise during our visit to Nebraska. The lady inside was very nice, knowledgeable and friendly. We will have to visit again in the summer cause the whole trail was closed down! We still thuroughly enjoyed our visit!
