Wagon trains first began heading west in the 1820s with the opening of the Santa Fe Trail from St. Louis, Missouri. The emigrant trains to Oregon and California had their origins in the mid-1840s, hitting their peak during the 1850s following the California Gold Rush. Find out what it is like to ride in a wagon train as these pioneers did, on the Old West Wagon Train Excursion!
Day 1: Wagon Train Excursion (group dinner)
This afternoon you will start an experience like no other. We will pick you up in downtown Pendleton, Oregon and drive you to where you will start this once in a lifetime experience. Have you ever wondered what it would be like to travel in a covered wagon pulled by mules, eat food cooked over the campfire, and sleep under the stars in an area where the sky is so dark you can see every star above you? Today is when that unforgettable experience starts! We will spend the next three days exploring Eastern Oregon in covered wagons pulled by mules and Belgian horses. All of your meals during this Wagon Train Excursion will be provided for you. We will sit around a campfire eating delicious food and telling stories until you can no longer hold your eyes open. Once you are ready for bed you can climb into your tent and enjoy the amazing quiet of Eastern Oregon.
Day 2: Wagon Train Excursion (group breakfast/lunch/dinner)
Wake up early so you can take in an unforgettable Eastern Oregon sunrise. If you want to sleep in you can, but don’t sleep in so late that you miss breakfast! Today we will continue exploring Eastern Oregon by wagon train. Be watching for deer, elk, eagles, and a variety of other wildlife as you explore the beauty of the Eastern Oregon forest by wagon train!
Day 3: Wagon Train Excursion (group breakfast)
This is our last morning on the wagons so make sure to soak up the experience. After breakfast we will return to Pendleton and you will be free to explore this wonderfully charming old west town!
** Please be aware that while on the Wagon Train Excursion you will be camping in a tent, and that there will be no bathroom facilities with running water available. We will have a backcountry toilet for you to use, but you will not be able to shower while we are camping.
