One of the most popular western travel routes, during mid 1800s, stretched 250 miles from Fort Laramie to central Wyoming's Shining Mountains and through South Pass. During a 30 year span, covered wagons with iron rimmed wheels carved deep ruts into a trail along the North Platte and Sweetwater rivers. This part of the Oregon Trail accrued a half dozen names, from the Forty-Niners' California Road to the Mormon Trail (named for the thousands of Brigham Young followers).
