Oregon Trail South of Three Island Crossing

The Oregon Trail was the primary route taken by some 400,000 emigrants to the western territories of the United States. Because so many people traveled these same paths in a fairly short timespan, there are a number of places where the wagon ruts are still visible. This is one such place, just south of Three Island Crossing, the primary place where the Trail travelers crossed the Snake River. Many trail ruts have been marked by the Bureau of Land Management.
