This is a portion of the McKenzie Salt Springs and Deschutes Wagon Road constructed during the period 1866-1872. The route across these lava fields was rough and torturous. However it was 1,000 feet lower in elevation than the older Scott Trail crossing the summit near the North Sister. The road became a toll road in 1872, a free county road in 1898 and a state highway in 1917. Other portions of this old wagon road can be traced across the lava fields west of here.
