HCRH Trail - HCRH Trail Dedication Guided Tour - Site 9: Wolf Tree

"The trail alignment was designed to avoid this awesome large fir tree and special care was taken to protect this tree during construction. Note the Osprey Nest in a similar tree on the east side of Moffett Creek." 2006 Historic Columbia River Highway Master Plan: "Beauty cannot be measured in dollars and

cents. When the highway was built, great

care was taken to keep the natural beauty

all about and not to mar the landscape. Every tree, flower, fern and shrub that

grew by the roadside was kept, and only

those that were within the exact path of

the finished roadway were touched." -

Samuel C. Lancaster
