Golden Spike 150th Anniversary

In a ceremony coined the Golden Spike on May 10, 1869, the Pacific Pacific and Central Pacific Railroads were joined in Utah to complete the Transcontinental Railroad. Today you can visit the Golden Spike National Historic Site to explore exhibits and demonstrations while taking in the beauty of the surrounding Great Basin Desert.

Weaving its way from Park City to Echo Reservoir, this 28-mile, non-motorized trail provides a close-up view of area wildlife and wildflowers. Explore the trail on foot, mountain bike, skis, or horseback.
