Hashknife trail

At the start of this year’s ride, Navajo County officials unveiled a sign outside the Holbrook Post Office designating portions of several state highways as the official route used by the Hashknife Pony Express riders each year. This year marked the posse’s 51st annual ride. The riders’ new final destination is in downtown Scottsdale, at a plaza featuring a larger-than-life statue of two Pony Express riders completing a hand-off of the mail that was unveiled for the event’s 50th anniversary last year.
