The Upper Spokane Indians were transient, moving from area to area, making use of seasonal resources. As salmon runs ended on the Snake River (near Walla Walla), they would travel to the upper Columbia River (and Colville River), and vice versa. This is the area of the original trail. Over the last century, farming and cultivation have pretty much wiped out any trace of the actual trail, but this monument marks the location.
