Summary
The Hudson's Bay Fur Company route to California was the fur trappers' and traders' road in the 1820s, 1830s, and 1840s from Fort Vancouver (now in Washington State) to San Francisco and beyond. Unlike some of our nation's historic trails which have since been obliterated or are largely untraveled, the fur men's rugged route was only a beginning. A few short years later it was dotted with pack trains, then with wagons, and later with Concord stagecoaches. By 1887 it was the roadbed for the railway which still links Oregon and California
