Red Bridge State Wayside

Park History

The original land was acquired in an exchange with the Mt. Emily Lumber Company in 1951. In 1961, the Boise Cascade Corporation gave the state the abandoned railroad right-of-way crossing the park. Reportedly, the old highway bridge over the Grande Ronde River was maintained in red paint by Union County, and thus, the park name.
