The Barlow Trail connects Still Creek Campground with Government Camp. Due to its historic value as part of the Barlow Road, It is a bit more primitive than most trails in the area to preserve its historic characteristics. Its rocky terrain and ditch like appearance are representative of how it likely looked when wagons and stock were on it starting in the 1850’s.

This once was a part of the Historic Barlow Road, one of the last legs of the Historic Oregon Trail. Where the trail meets the Still Creek Campground, there is the site of a historic resort called Swim. Swim was most active in the 1920’s. Various foundations from the facility including an old pool can still be found.

Leave What You Find is one of the Leave No Trace principles and is important to keep in mind on this trail. Historical artifacts are reminders of the rich human history of the area. Allow other visitors to discover these sites by leaving them intact. These features, even seemingly insignificant items from 50 years ago, are protected by law.
