Handcart Treks

One of the most popular and rewarding experiences the Park offers is our Day Trek. Every youthful trekker who pushes and pulls a pioneer-era hand cart up a dusty mountainside will learn teamwork, cooperation and friendship. It fosters greater appreciation for the sacrifices of those who came before.

Guided by the Trail Boss and his team in period costume, Day Trekkers (also in period costume) will begin early, end in the evening, and have lots of fun in between. They'll meet pioneers along the way, including Mary Fielding Smith and Ephraim Hanks. The girls will participate in the arduous women-only handcart pull, then everyone will enjoy lunch on the mountain. Snacks will be provided as necessary for energy to finish the trek. Options for dinner and dancing after the trek are available.
