On I-84 at exit 353. After following the Snake River for more than 320 miles, the emigrants took their last look at their watery guide and set forth across the sagebrush steppes of eastern Oregon. An interpretive shelter is located in the State Park. Wagon ruts are visible at nearby Birch Creek, which is accessible by road from the west side of the freeway interchange.
