    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Stop At: End of the Oregon Trail Interpretive Center, 1726 Washington St, Oregon City, OR 97045-1058

    Made up of several buildings beneath giant wagon frames, the Interpretive Center contains hands-on exhibits where costumed interpreters describe the challenges of packing for the cross-country trek. Visitors are free to get hands-on with history here by dressing up, packing a wagon and trying their hands at pioneer crafts and activities like candle making. The “Bound for Oregon” video presentation and other exhibits also immerse visitors in historic tales and explain how Oregon City was the end of the trail for many because it was where land claims were granted for Oregon, Washington, Idaho and Wyoming.

    Duration: 1 hour

    Stop At: Oregon City Municipal Elevator, Railroad & 7th Street, Oregon City, OR 97045

    We will ride the Oregon City Municipal Elevator which continues to operate as the only outdoor municipal elevator in the US and one of only four municipal elevators in the world and “Elevator Street” remains the only “vertical street” in North America. This 130-foot elevator connects two neighborhoods in Oregon City. The upper portion contains an observation deck which accounts for its flying saucer appearance. There have been two elevators at this location with the current elevator was built in 1954-55.

    Duration: 20 minutes

    Stop At: Willamette Falls, Highway 99E and Interstate 205 102 McLoughlin Blvd, Oregon City, OR 97045

    Willamette Falls is one of the most significant natural features in the state. A Native salmon and lamprey fishery for at least eight thousand years, Willamette Falls plummets abruptly straight down the height of a four-story building from the Willamette Valley into the Oregon City–West Linn basin. Beginning in the mid-nineteenth century, the falls powered the earliest mills in the region and contributed to the growth of the first United States government in the Oregon Territory. We will stop at Willamette Falls and you will be able to explore the area while learning about the amazing history of this waterfall over time.

    Duration: 20 minutes
