The Coos Wagon Road

Most of the pioneer trails have either been aBandoned or are now completely developed that they don't conjure up any images of early settlers. The Coos Bay Wagon Road is an exception. Running 78 miles today, the road was opened in 1872 as a link between Roseburg and Coos Bay. Even though it has been upgraded, it still runs through some very scenic back country. If you drive it today, there will be eleven miles of unpaved road if you follow the complete route. The new natural gas pipeline to Coos Bay follows the right of way of the old Wagon Road.

If you follow the route to the coast in order to get married, ask Wren Smart for her assistance. She's experienced at it, having helped many people get married and having done it three times herself.
