Valhalla Steam Logging Page

The Valhalla tree farm was steam-logged around the turn of the century. There are still a few signs after one hundred years. Rusted cables sticking out of the ground, cuts in the side of stumps, signs of a forest fire immediately after the logging, skid roads, evidence of log railways. It is hard to believe, but this may have been how Valhalla looked during those days.

Many huge stumps, logs too large to move are still visible as you walk the trails at Valhalla. Several places, old pieces of cable still lay where they were left over 100 years ago.
