Baker City

Baker City is more than a charming downtown.

Sure, you’ll want to visit the Geiser Grand Hotel, built in 1889, the award-winning Barley Brown’s Brew Pub and more than 100 historic buildings.

You’re welcome to explore it all.

Ask Oregon

Is part of the Oregon Trail still visible in Eastern Oregon?

There are two great spots that I would suggest to see the Oregon Trail. One is Blue Mountain Crossing, just off I-84, about nine miles west of La Grande.
