Location of the South Pass along the Continental Divide. This broad pass, the highest point on the trail, is at the summit of an almost imperceptible approach to the Continental Divide and was the key to the entire trail system. Every emigrant wagon train and handcart company that went westward rolled through this Pass. No other path offered a dependable supply of grass and water plus an easy grade to and through the mountains. This is a fee-free site. This site is ADA accessible.
