This is a report on the 4 mile stretch of the Yellowstone trail that has been abandoned since 1927. It lies northwest of Lake Easton, WA. I also took some photos of the 1927 bridge on the new alignment that replaced the ghost highway.

 

Most of this road is so overgrown that in places it is just a footpath. We were able to walk or drive on all but the last mile which has not seen a car in almost 90 years.

The then and now photo is looking westbound. I am 90% certain this close to the same spot.

Hey Curt,

 

Nice write-up & excellent photographs documenting the road.  Looks like a neat adventure.  Thank you for sharing!

 

I think my favorite image may be the then-now photo!
