Barlow Crossing Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"In fall, hunters use this quiet, rustic camp, which is situated in a forest of firs and lodgepole pines above 10-foot-wide Barlow Creek, just upstream from its confluence with the White River. The sites have pretty log tables, but the parking is undefined; one site sits at creek level. Nearby interpretive signs tell the story of Barlow Road, an overland segment of the Oregon Trail that linked the Columbia River Gorge to the Willamette Valley. This difficult route allowed pioneers to avoid a treacherous voyage down the Columbia River. Early pioneers cached supplies near here in 1845."
