Overview

This trip is perfect for anyone interested in America’s history, from forts to huge rock carvings of historical figures. Starting from Denver at the edge of the Rocky Mountains, you’ll travel up to Wyoming to view the tracks of the pioneers who risked it all to get to Oregon by covered wagon. Then it’s off to the Black Hills, exploring mammoth sites and caves along the way. Watch the lights turn on at Mount Rushmore, view the work-in-process Crazy Horse Monument, then see nature’s sculptures at Devils Tower in Wyoming before returning to Denver.

“We just had an absolutely wonderful time! This was a vacation of a lifetime. The kids loved the RV, and the scenery was breathtakingly beautiful. Tracks and Trails made this overwhelming trip easy. I just couldn’t have done it without all of your help!””
