Cedar Mountains Wild Horse Range
Footsteps and Hoofbeats

Between 1820 and 1860, explorers and settlers followed a route to California which passed this site. One group, the Donner-Reed party, inched their way through rugged Hastings Pass only to face tragedy in the High Sierras.

Now wild horses follow in their footprints as they range the Cedar Mountains.
