Discover the Oregon Trail. Walk in the path of past pioneers when you visit sections of the Barlow Road. See stories of their journey and live historical interpreters at the End of the Oregon Trail Interpretive Center. Philip Foster Farm offers a glimpse into what daily life was like back in the 1800s. 

Located in the heart of Government Camp, the Mt. Hood Cultural Center and Museum  is a great starting point to understand the past and present of Mt. Hood life. On your way to Mt. Hood, stop at Sandy for a self-guided historic walking tour or drop by the volunteer-run Sandy Historical Museum.
