Description

California Gulch is a gorgeous hiking trail through an historic landscape. It winds its way through the woods, across flower-filled meadows and down into an old growth forest along a seasonal stream. Designed for you to linger, this 2-mile long trail begins at the Oregon Trail Interpretive Park picnic area. It offers something for everyone. Experience a re-created logging operation from the late 1800s. Search for wildlife signs in the forest. Sit on log benches and enjoy master poetry carefully selected and sited for special places along the trail. Bird Track Springs Interpretive Trail and the city of La Grande offer additional interpretive trails while nearby campgrounds such as Spring Creek, Bird Track, and Spool Cart offer a great place to stay.

Bring no pets.
