In June 2015, my husband and I spent 3 days/2 nights with Morris, Randy, and Mylon on the Oregon Trail. My bucket list dream was to get a glimpse of how my ancestors traveled the Oregon Trail via covered wagon in the 1800s. Historic Trails West made my dream come true -- and then some! Despite some unforeseen difficulties, our... More

We just finished a four-hour day trip and it was AWESOME!! I rode a horse and my husband rode in the covered wagon. We rode along the actual, original, unimproved Oregon Trail. The scenery was spectacular. Morris was a wealth of information. It just couldn't have been any more fun than it was. Being unaccustomed to riding a horse, the... More

We went in the 4 hour lunch trip and very much enjoyed it. I went in the wagon and my husband rode a horse. Morris was excellent and shared his vast knowledge with us, and made the trip really memorable.

It was actually about 4 years ago that we first did this activity. We met Morris Carter at the Fort Caspar Museum and then followed him to the trailhead where there was a wagon and some horses waiting. They actually lease land that was part of the Oregon Trail. There were 5 people in our group - three of us... More

My husband and I booked a 4-hr ride with dinner this month/Sept with Historic Trails West and had a wonderful time learning about the Oregon Trail, experiencing a true horse-drawn covered wagon ride following a portion of the actual Oregon Trail followed by a good meal cooked outdoors. The experience was outstanding and we would recommend anyone interested in our... More

Our family of six were really looking forward to getting a taste of the pioneer life, with a covered wagon trip followed by an overnight stay "on the praire" but found the experience to not be worth the $200+ per person it cost. On the positive side, the short wagon ride gave us great respect for the pioneer settlers who... More

We took the 4-hour covered wagon and horse riding trip. How interesting, fun and novel. I rode in the covered wagon most of the time and my husband rode Taz. Taz is a beautiful horse, very well trained and easy to ride. I am older and stiff and just wasn't as confident riding him as my husband, The scenery was... More

This is far from a typical tourist stop. We went out with the owner who has traveled on the entire trial and builds his own covered wagons. He is a wealth of information on the trail and the surrounding area. Dinner was a very casual unstaged event, as was the entire 4 hour ride. It was very refreshing and a... More
