First Railroad Car

From Oregon Hikers Field Guide

The railroad car before the 2018 Substation Fire (Jerry Adams)


NOTE: This railroad car was destroyed in the July 2018 Substation Fire.

At mile 5.6, there used to be an old railroad car. It would offer some protection if the weather was bad. The car was completely burned up in the 2018 Substation Fire.

You are quite high above the river here, and the place offers some commanding views. A rough trail descends to the river, and across the Deschutes you can see the mouth of Allen Canyon and the rugged Free Bridge Road descending the steep slope.

Note that the "second" railroad car, which used to stand at Mile 7.8, disappeared years before.
