2. Hudson Bay Trail Marker
Hudson Bay Trail is more correctly called the Siskiyou Trail.
 
Also see . . .  Siskiyou Trail. The Siskiyou Trail stretched from California's Central Valley to Oregon's Willamette Valley; modern-day Interstate 5 follows this pioneer path. Originally based on existing Native American foot trails winding their way through river valleys, the Siskiyou Trail provided the shortest practical travel path between early settlements in California and Oregon.
