Santiam Wagon Road Walk

Join the Deschutes Land Trust and Carol Wall to explore the 150-year old Santiam Wagon Road at Whychus Canyon Preserve. Hike back in time and imagine traveling west in a wagon train to transport wool from Eastern Oregon to the Willamette Valley, or east to graze livestock on the grasses of the desert. Explore the site of an early homestead and observe the signs and symbols still visible along the trail today that help to tell the story of travel and commerce in the high desert. Registration is required
