Trail Description Driving Directions

The 2.5-mile historic wagon road built in the early 1900's to transport apples from the upper farmlands to the White Salmon River for transporting to markets. It is now a year-round trail with a wildflower show in the spring and great colors of vine maples and oak woodlands in autumn. To find the trailhead, walk 0.15 mile up a 4x4 road to a well marked sign for Weldon Wagon Trail. At 1.5 miles, the trail takes you into the White Salmon Oak Natural Conservation Area. Return the way you came. At the end of the wagon road you'll find old rusted farm equipment left there to capture a feel for the past. This trail also makes for great mountain biking.  + Read More
