In the American Old West overland trails were popular means of travel .

In the American Old West overland trails were popular means of travel used by pioneers and immigrants throughout the 18th century and especially between 1600 and 1870 as an alternative to sea and railroad transport. During the Mexican–American War, the wagon to California road known as Cooke's Wagon Road, or Sonora Road, was built across Nuevo Mexico, Sonora and Alta California from Santa Fe, New Mexico to San Diego Santa Fe Trail. Main article: Santa Fe Trail.

A wagon train is a group of wagons traveling together. Before the extensive military vehicles, baggage trains followed an army with supplies and ammunition. In the American West, settlers traveling across the plains and mountain passes in covered wagons banded together for mutual assistance. Although wagon trains are associated with the Old West, the Trekboers of South Africa also traveled in caravans of covered wagons.
