Best Answer

How long it took to travel the Mormon Trail depended on how you were traveling. A man on a fast horse (such as a Pony Express rider) could travel the trail within just a few days. A small company in a fast carriage (this is the mode most Mormon Missionaries took to the East Coast) would take a couple of weeks at most. A large group with wagons would take a couple months, and walking or pulling your own handcart would take even longer.

This depends on how many were in your group and how you were traveling. A single rider on a horse could probably complete the trip in just over a week, while a large wagon or handcart group would take two or three months to complete the journey.

The first Mormon Pioneers left Illinois in 1846 and arrived in Salt Lake City in 1847 after wintering over in Nebraska. Mormon converts from all over the world continued to immigrate to Salt Lake City on the Mormon trail until 1869, when the transcontinental railroad was completed. Most converts then made the journey by rail.

How long was the Mormons Journy?

The Mormon Trail was approximately 1,300 miles long. It would take anywhere from several weeks to several months to travel it, depending on the mode of travel, the number of people in your group, and the weather. Keep in mind that most who traveled the Mormon trail did not originate from the beginning of the trail in the midwest of America, but came from futher away places such as Canada, New England, Great Britain, and Scandinavia. This meant that their journey was much further than just the 1,300 mile trail.

The first Mormon Pioneer group took 2 years to cross the Mormon trail... this is mostly because there wasn't yet a trail and they didn't really know exactly where they were going.
