Where did the Mormon trail end at?
The Mormon Trail ended in Salt Lake City, Utah. From there, many Mormons were sent to colonize towns all over the west, while others stayed in the city.
The Mormon Trail ended in Salt Lake City, Utah. Originally, there was nothing at the end but an empty desert valley and a really stinky salty lake, but the pioneers began building a city, so that by the time people stopped traveling the Mormon trail (due to the railroad coming), there was a big thriving city at the end of thet trail.
It didn't end on any certain day. The Mormon trail was used exclusively for about 23 years (1846 to 1869) as the only route to travel to and from Utah. The railroad finally reached utah in 1869 and as train travel became more affordable, travel along the Mormon trail died out. Parts of the trail are still traveled today, as they have been paved and become major highways.
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.
