The 14-foot Lumberman’s Monument was erected in 1931 and Three bronze figures depict different stages of the lumber industry. The Lumberman’s Monument Visitor Center explores the logging history of the region and kids of all ages will love the hands-on activities that let them experience the life of a lumberjack. Then take 272 steps down to Cooke Dam to see a Wanigan, which was a floating kitchen and supply raft used by loggers, as well as to take in beautiful views of the river and dunes. You can also participate in ranger-led walks and activity programs and get information about the region and hiking trails, etc. The site is free, donations accepted.
