|history of the area|
You have a horse drawn wagon.
It only goes straight up/down hills.
Here is the LIDAR of Laurel Hill.
Where do you take all your worldly possessions, your family, your food, your transportation?
Down the ODOT - build the loop highway "chutes" into the V-valley of Camp Creek, as pontificated by some?
Or down the north side to the Zigzag River?
See the images, and you decide,
It's would only be your life on the line.

The Barlow Ranger District of the Mt. Hood National Forest will likely sponsor their annual Pioneer History Camp this year September 2013. The camp will be held at White River Station Campground along the Oregon Trail in the beautiful Cascade Mountains . The camp is along the Barlow Road , the last overland segment of the Oregon Trail , and the setting is what an 1840's pioneer camp might have looked like. There is a pioneer wagon, trunk with clothes, tin ware, period dishes, cast iron Dutch ovens, bags of dried foods, and a basket of children's toys from the time period to try out. Interpreters live in tents, cook in dutch ovens, dress in pioneer clothing, and share the stories of the trail.
To sign up for an organized field trip, call (541) 467-2291, or the White River Station campground is located along Forest Service road 3530. For more information or directions, contact the Barlow Ranger District at (541) 467-2291.

LIDAR indicates only a fool would take a wagon down into the V-valley south of U.S. 26
It clearly shows that the path north into the Zigzag river area is much, much better.
