This journey from Boaz to Montgomery is one of the largest and oldest annual moving wagon trains in America.

You do not have to ride the entire 10 days. You may ride a day, rest, and rejoin at a later camp.

Most of the ride takes place along the old Jackson Trace Trail and includes blacktop, side roads and trail rides. The ride concludes at the Southeastern Livestock Exposition in Montgomery.

Each camp is pre-set and made ready. The camp is catered on site with meals available for reasonable fee.
