Trail, 97541

Jackson County

As a youth we passed through Trail only in the dark of night, usually headed duck hunting or fishing. I only remember it as a junction where we turned towards Crater Lake. The junction is the intersection of Route 227 and Route 62. Coming over the mountains from Canyonville one turns right to Shady Cover or left to Crater Lake. It is easy to think Trail is only the store and a few houses, but circle around behind the store. You will find a nice museum and the post office. If you pester the store owner a little he will tell you a few stories. Trail is a 'census designated place' so not quite a town but it has a great location.
