Here are maps of the route I took from Salt Lake City to Elko attempting to follow the Pony Express Trail. My route is marked with red dots. The green circles represent Pony Express Trail markers erected by the Bureau of Land Management.  The trail across Utah is well-marked with new large signs having been added in just the last year.  The signage in Nevada varies from road signs at some  intersections to iron posts stuck in the ground with the label “XP Trail” attached to them. The black circles represent Overland Stage markers. They have been recently installed. They are made of iron rails and contain quotes from travelers’ journals.
