Wire Trail

Telegraph poles from 1868 can still be found in the Columbia Gorge. The first line was strung that year between Troutdale and The Dalles, following an old Indian trail. Members of Troutdale Historical Society will present “Finding the Wire Trail” at the Regional History Forum presentation Saturday, Feb. 22, at the Original Courthouse in The Dalles.
