One of the unique features of the Westminster Woods Camp and Conference Center is that it has an Oregon Trail gravesite, and a good example of deep ruts caused by Oregon Trail wagons as they crossed the Blue Mountains near Emigrant Springs.
The article below describes the Oregon Trail near Emigrant Springs and Westminster Woods, including a map showing the trail's location.
The Oregon Trail gravesite is located to the southwest of the chapel/meeting center facility, and it is enclosed with a split-rail fence to limit impacts to the gravesite location.
The Oregon Trail ruts are located in the extreme southwest corner of the 66-acre property, and are easily accessed from a trail crossing the small meadow area near the chapel/meeting center facility.
The Oregon Trail ruts are a good place for contemplation and reflection; for this reason, a nice bench was installed near the ruts so visitors can rest and reflect.
