Everyone in our group (two adults/two kids) loved the experience. Daniel and Morris were excellent guides and hosts who both knew a lot about the history of the trail. They told us interesting anecdotes to help us understand the lives pioneers had and did a thorough job answering our questions. During the ride, it was nice that we all had... More

We chose to ride the trail on horseback instead of riding in the wagon. It was a great trip with a lot of history, and the sights are amazing. It gave us a greater appreciation for what the early settlers must have gone through. I would highly recommend going on this adventure to anyone coming to this area to see... More

The area is beautiful and the guides are very knowledgable. My husband and I rode horses. My parents rode in the back of the covered wagon with another elderly couple. Our guide told us that back in the day, no one rode in the covered wagons. They would load them down with supplies and walk beside them. They were smarter... More

Went there with Mother and Father in-law. They ride the wagon ride and my wife and I rode horses. Our guide Daniel was great. The wagon was authentic and the horses were tame. The meal they fixed is was great also. The wagon ride was extremely bumpy and not for anyone with balance or back problems.

I went on a ride and overnight with Morris' outfit as a start to my summer vacation. I'm an independent Oregon Trail researcher, and while my guide's historical information was a little off at times, he was good company. Stayed overnight at the camp set up right on the Platte; I still think it's fun to wake up in a... More

A very informative, entertaining while very realistic regarding the feel of a wagon train. The ride is conducted over trails actually used back in the day or adjacent to trails like the Oregon and California. Morris and Daniel drove the 2 horse team for our Conestoga wagon. The ride is conducted over unspoiled land which made this trip even better.... More

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
