If you have any interest in Oregon's history, here's a route that starts on the Oregon Trail and goes to a site of Oregon's version of the gold rush - with tasty scenery in between. Start in downtown Baker City, which hosts the nearby Oregon Trail Interpretive Center. From the city park, jog west on Washington Avenue to connect to State Route 7 through town. You’ll get a good feel for this quiet city in the couple miles it takes to get to the other side of it. Where the railroad overpass bisects SR 7 at the 1-mile mark, take the sidewalk rather than the street; it’s a tight squeeze otherwise.
