Take this short and easy trail for a trip through Pacific northwest history. While this riverbank locale just downstream from the Bonneville Dam now consists merely of a quiet young forest of oak and fir, it once boasted a town, military post, railroad, and a flurry of human activity. First floods in the late 1800s and then the construction of the dam in 1938 changed all of that. Grab an interpretive brochure at the trailhead and wander back in time.
