Photo: BLM Nevada, 50th Anniversary
In 1860 from St. Joseph, Missouri, to Sacramento, California the Pony Express could deliver a letter faster than ever before. Today the Pony Express National Historic Trail celebrates this achievement on the 50th anniversary of the trails.
In honor of the 50th Anniversary of the Trails System, BLM created an historic trails map.
It is available as a pdf and can be downloaded here: https://t.co/4areXY8iHm

Churchill Co. 4th graders came out to see the Pony Express re-riders and celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the National Historic Trails Act. We had so much fun at Fort Churchill State Park! #YourPublicLands #Celebrate #GetOutdoors #History pic.twitter.com/tfN3pQJjQp
