St. Cloud Day Use Area & Trail (#4410)

Area Status: Open
This area is Open

Acquired by the Forest Service in 1990, this historic site offers a great family stroll through a historic apple orchard along St. Cloud Interpretive Trail #4410. An accessible interpretive loop of three-foot wide gravel provides signs explaining the site's history and views of the Oregon side of the Gorge. Picnic tables at the viewpoint help complete the experience for day trippers. 

Once the St. Cloud Ranch homestead, the area is possibly the largest remaining natural wetland in the Gorge, providing habitat for an extensive variety of wildlife. The site is culturally significant to Native Americans as well. Historically, members of the Watlala Tribe utilized many of the plant and animal species that were or are present at the St. Cloud site.

Please be aware of the nearby railroad tracks.
