The Barlow Trail Road at Mt. Hood
Our local area on Mt Hood is filled with history. I travel on Barlow Trails Road a couple of times a week. As I drive along Barlow Trail, I'm traveling the road that over 50,000 emigrants used to travel into Oregon. The Barlow Trail Road in the mid 1800's opened up the Willamette Valley for settlement. These early emigrants helped Oregon estabish a population which eventually led to acheiving statehood. Read about the history.
