CannonTracks - Pony Express Trail (MO, KS, NE, CO, WY)

This ride covers a great deal of history involving the Pony Express and the Emigrant Trails.

The ride report that covers this track is here:
Big Bike Solo on the Pony Express Trail (MO, KS, NE, CO, WY)

The track itself is about a 1,500 mile ride. It starts in St Joseph, MO, and ends in Evanston, WY. It took me six days to ride the tracks as there are a couple of hundred points on interest as part of the track.


You can ride this all at once or select portions for day or multi-day rides. It is suitable for large adventure bikes.

In support of the ride, I have prepared a spreadsheet that gives planning mileages, gas stops, potential camping spots, and give clickable web links for the points of interest. Here is a sample page (outdated info in this picture - have a more current version now).


If you decided to take this ride and want a copy of this five page spreadsheet for your planning, PM me with an e-mail address and I will send it to you.


Here is an interactive map of the route:

If you prefer a .gdb instead of a .gpx, PM me with an e-mail address and I will send you a .gdb file.

If I can be of other assistance, feel free to contact me.

Added a Route

Added a route to the basic file of waypoints and tracks.

Don't recalculate the route enroute or it will undo some cross country sections (not on routable roads). (If you do, you may be able to stop the route and reopen it again without changes.)

Some GPS units may automatically recalc when you load so beware of small changes.

Files Available for Download Again

These tracks are now available again for download. Many thanks to fellow ADVer deputyjones who offered some server space.

Go to http://dsam-mi.org/GPS_Files/ and you will see a directory of folders that contain the files. You should be able to choose the proper directory without much trouble. The individual files will have names that are the same as or similar to the file names listed when the files were hosted on ADV.

The files are listed as .zip files. If you left click/open the file, you will open it in your computer's temporary internet directory. Depending on how you have your computer set up, clicking on the .gpx will open the file with Mapsource so you can look at it. Remember, it is in your temporary internet files.

To save the file in one of your neatly filed directories, "left click/save" or "right click/save target as" and put it where you want to keep it.

Some of the files have an associated spreadsheet file with points of interest (Black Hills, Pony Express, etc). Same procedures apply.

Happy to have quick and easy access to these files again.

Mostly pavement.
