When South Pass City was founded in 1868 it was on the edge of the frontier. A traveler
in 1900 would feel right at home if he were standing on Main street today. But,
for the modern traveler not used to the hardships of horse & wagon a few things should
be kept in mind.
There is NO GASOLINE in South Pass City. Nearest services are in Lander, 32 miles
to the North or Farson, 40 Miles to the South. PLAN AHEAD.
Some visitors are unused to dirt roads. Take it slow & take your time.
South Pass City is at 8000 feet, you may feel the altitude. Good shoes, water &
knowing your own limits will make your visit fun & safe.
