Parting of the Ways

Emigrants bound for Oregon (rather than Salt Lake) had the option here of skipping Fort Bridger and taking the Sublette Cutoff to save a few miles. There was some confusion about the exact route, with False Parting of the Ways coming ten miles before the real junction.

Fort Bridger

Mile 1026

Fort Bridger was an important supply point. It was also where the trail split, with the Mormon Trail heading south to Salt Lake City, while the Oregon Trail turned north towards Soda Springs and Fort Hall on the Snake River.
