These trails will take you along the Snake River, Dore Scarp and Shaws Pond. From at op the scenic lookout in times of low water, it is still possible to see the river channel as it was before the dam was built in the eighteenth century to create the millpond. The landscapes and diversity of life forms found here stand in sharp contrast to the hardwood forest spreading out before you to the southwest. Pre-1900 forest fire regimes and more recent logging has influenced the forests growing today.
However, as you will soon learn, there are numerous connections linking the natural, geological, and human histories of the land along both sides of the waterway. We hope you enjoy your journey back in time!
