Wagon Train Trek 

Wagons Ho! Western Legends Heritage & Music Festival is proud to present an authentic 4-day, 3-night Wagon Train Trek, led by true cowboys and the experienced teamsters, horsemen and wranglers from Western Wagon Masters, LLC. The “Pioneers” and “Outriders” traveled through some of the most beautiful back country in America! This was a true adventure through 50 miles of some of the most iconic Western scenery anywhere: directly below the rim of Bryce Canyon and across the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument and into Kanab. Each evening they “Circled the Wagons”, gathered around the traditional campfire under the stars. They enjoyed some great cowboy grub, tall tales, cowboy poetry, singing, and making great memories. The last leg of the Trek’s journey is a ride down Center Street Kanab – joining our “High Noon Parade”! If you’re “Cowboy enough”, maybe you can join our Trek next year. 

 

The wagon train will have approximately 50-60 people attending this year in honor and pay tribute to Dennis MacDonald-fellow teamster/wagon master that rode off into the sunset last fall.   The wagon train will consist of approximately 15 wagons along with 50-60 outriders.  The trek will begin Monday, August 10, 2020 near Crawford Pass just under the beautiful pink cliffs below Bryce Canyon with views that actually look over into Arizona.

The trek travels southbound down to  Deer Springs  ranch.  Camp will be set up there and dinner will be served at 6:00 p.m. followed with world class entertainment.  On Tuesday the wagon train will begin the trek and head on down to the next campsite at Skutumpah.  They will arrive about 3 to 4 p.m. and begin setting up camp.  And again dinner and world class entertainment at 6:00 p.m.  Wednesday morning the wagon train will move on out and continue south to the Church Ranch campsite.  After setting up camp, they will again have a wonderful dinner beginning at 6:00 pm followed by more entertainment.

For anyone wanting to join up with the wagon train in the evening and have dinner with them,  the cost is only 20.00 which included some of the finest outdoor cooked meals in west accompanied by amazing entertainment! The last leg of the trek will begin on Thursday morning from the church ranch camp and arrive in Kanab where they will hitch up their horses and rest their wagons.   Friday and Saturday after the parade the entire wagon train and outriders will be staged in front of the historic Parry Lodge for offering rides to the public.
