Trails Added to National Register of Historic Places

January 25, 2012

Four trails within Oregon Caves National Monument have been added to the National Register of Historic Places. The historic trails were included due to the historic design principles used by the Civilian Conservation Corps when they were constructed between 1934 and 1941, and which can still be seen today. Designed to blend with the natural environment, the trails also utilize design principles that connect them to the buildings that were also constructed at the monument.

The trails include the Lake Mountain Trail, Big Tree Trail, Cliff Nature Trail, and No Name Trail. The entire national property was added to the National Register in 1992.
