Cow Creek

Back Country Byway - Oregon

Get ready for a beautiful drive through history as you follow the winding Cow Creek Back Country Byway. The route is 45-miles long and parallels Cow Creek most of your journey. This rustic two-lane road is a great alternative to Interstate 5 and connects the towns of Riddle and Glendale. Along the byway are interpretive signs that talk about the history of the long forgotten town of West Fork, the historic railroad, and gold mining in the area. The Island Creek day use area is a great stop to stretch your legs, pan for gold, or have a creek-side picnic during your drive. Skull Creek Campground is a free first-come, first served campground offering up 5 sites for weary travelers.
