Experience the Oregon Trail as the pioneers did! Some of the best-preserved traces of the Old Emigrant Road await you on this grassy ridge. Walk among stately ponderosa pines that still bear the scars made by passing wagons over 150 years ago. Meander on a gentle footpath next to wagon-wide depressions. Enjoy the sweeping view that met the emigrant’s eyes so long ago. Choose a Discovery Trail and literally walk in the footsteps of the pioneers. A living history encampment is staffed on weekends. Additional attractions in the Oregon Trail Interpretive Park can be found on the California Gulch Trail. Camp nearby at Bird Track Springs, Spring Creek, or Spool Cart campgrounds, or in the city of La Grande.
Fully accessible, with drinking water, restrooms, and picnic area. Pets are allowed in designated areas only. Open Memorial Day through September, 8 AM to 8PM or during daylight hours.
