Seven tunnels - one a horseshoe more than a quater mile long — had to be blasted in this canyon so that a railroad could be completed to Grangeville in 1908. Building a railroad up this canyon was exceptionally difficult and expensive. Although they competed in Lewiston, Union Pacific and Northern Pacific officials decided to organize a separate company, in which each of them had an equal interest, to complete a Camas Prairie line. Otherwise, neither would have had enough traffic to operate profitably.
