Washburne State Wayside Wikipedia
Washburne State Wayside is a state park 4 miles (6 km) northwest of Junction City, in the U.S. state of Oregon. Administered by the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department, the wayside serves as a rest stop for travelers on Oregon Route 99W and interpretive center for the Applegate Trail. The state bought the land for the park in 1926 from William C. and Mae E. Washburne. It lies on the border between Lane and Benton counties.
Amenities include picnic tables, a restroom, a nature trail, and interpretive signs about the Applegate Trail. The day-use park, open year-round, is visited by about 131,000 people a year. The nature trail leads into a forest of second-growth Douglas fir.
