HCRH is the acronym for Historic Columbia
This roadway was the First American Scenic Highway built for vehicles.
Indigenous peoples have been walking in this human corridor for 12,000 years or more. Know that the people who came to this region in the 1700s and later benefited from these paths well worn by the millions of people whom occupied these lands.
We are stewards of this
precious land, water and air.
