Long Description:
This register is for the Blewett Arrastra, which was in the historic town of Old Blewett. It is on Blewett Pass.

This spot has a lot of history. You can see part of the Arrastra, and there is a nice historic marker with pictures and history about Blewett.

To find the Arrastra, walk across the highway from the U.S. National Register of Historic Places plaque. Then follow the guardrail to the left until you see a broken down wooden staircase on the other side of the rail. At the bottom of the staircase is the arrastra.

Be careful of traffic, and the stairs.
