Cub River/shoshone Indian Trail

Traveling up the Cub River from the Bear River and over into Bear Lake valley you will find the historical Shoshone Indian Trail. The Shoshone Indians traveled this route from their winter grounds to Bear Lake and into Wyoming Territory for hunting and fishing. The Pony Express and early pioneers used this same trail as the first route into the Bear Lake Valley from Cache Valley. The trail is passible by foot, risky by horse, and viewable by ATV, snowmobile, or ATV.
