The nature trail takes you from the visitor center to the old depot with native plant displays. The Hollenberg Pony Express Station, also known as Cottonwood Pony Express Station, is the most intact surviving station of the Pony Express in the United States. It was built by Gerat H. Hollenberg in 1858, to serve travelers on the Oregon and California Trails, and was used by the Pony Express when it was established in 1860. Please note this is open limited times (see tips)

Simple historic site but significant regarding the Pony Express. Its worth a little effort to make it to this site.
