The Mormon Trail was traveled by Mormon Pioneers from Illinois to Utah after they had been kicked out of Illinois. It was then traveled by Mormon converts from Europe and Canada as they immigrated to "Zion" (the Mormon settlements in Utah). The trail was mostly discontinued after the railroad reached Salt Lake City.
