Follow the Pony Express Re-Ride and the mail as they travel 1,966 miles from St. Joseph, MO to Sacramento, CA. The Pony Riders travel day and night to make the 10 day trip. There is a GPS that is carried in the Mochila. While viewing the map you can zoom in and out for a better view. This map will be active 24/7. This map can also be viewed in a separate window.
You also can check the National Pony Express Hotline at 1-855-809-8589. This Hotline is updated as soon as reports begin coming in from the trail. These reports come from riders, support staff for the riders, Radio Ham Operators and from the interactive map.
Stories and status updates are also added to our Reports from the Trail.
