OTE - Oregon Travel Experience

Kenney Pass

Posted on: October 10th, 2012 by Annie Von Domitz in Oregon Trail Interpretive Sites |

From Highway 201, follow Oregon Trail signs northwest toward Vale; if traveling from Vale, drive southeast on Enterprise Avenue.

The route west from the Snake River was a hot, dry, and dusty pull that tested the stamina of the oxen and the patience of the emigrants. Wagon ruts are visible at an interpretive shelter and overlook at Keeney Pass. Alkali Springs, north of Vale, is another interpretive site directly on the Trail.
