(original route/Smock Road) The early Barlow Road route crosses Gate Creek a little over 5 miles upstream from where Gate Creek merges into Rock Creek. Between 1846 to 1852 the first of five tollgates operating on the Barlow Road was established at this Gate Creek crossing. The route on the 1860 cadastral survey for T4S, R12E, shows the "Immigrant Road" crossing Rock Creek and heading southwest to Gate Creek, where it then turns west following Gate Creek's north bank until it crosses in T4S, R11E, Section 35. The route shown on the 1872 cadastral survey map shows "Road Across the Cascades to Barlow's Gate" crossing at the same location, but entering the area from the northeast.

Mazamas: An abbreviated history

William Gladstone Steel, a no-nonsense postman, was the driving force behind the Mazamas. Steel wanted to establish a climbing organization run by climbers for climbers. He was adamant that summiting a glaciated peak be a requirement for membership, a threshold that remains today. As if founding a new organization was not enough, Steel was also advocating for the creation of Crater Lake National Park. His seventeen years of work paid off when President Theodore Roosevelt signed the Park into law. Swim – Mt. Hood History.

This was the first view most Easterners in our young country had of places like Yellowstone, the Grand Canyon and Yosemite — places that would eventually become the crown jewels of our national park system. And just as Mount Hood and the Columbia River Gorge are still believed by many to be part of the national park system, the painters and photographers of the mid-1800s captured them in their untouched state along with the other great places in the West.

Green Cascadia: Pot Creek Cabin Camp - May 2011. History is a remarkable thing, ever fluid, ever elusive. With our increasingly mechanized world, wonders of the even recent-past have a habit of quickly vanishing from the public consciousness. Before roads, trails were the only way to cross our tangled Cascades. People journeyed in ways most basic - by foot, or by horse. Suitable camps become precious places, especially after a many-day trip into deep wilderness. A flat spot to rest, suitable browse and water for man and horse, all crucial things we now take for granted. 1938 MHNF map. Geologic Map of Oregon. Mt Hood National Forest - Data Library.
