Map of Proposed GN Branch to Peach

Shown as "Miles" on the map.

One person commented when asked about this branch: "This, I presume, would be GN's stillborn Hawk Creek Branch. It left the GN mainline at Bluestem and was intended to run to Klaxta and/or Peach on the Columbia River. Parts of the line were graded in 1913 and can be seen in several places west of SR 28 between Bluestem Creek Bridge and Davenport. I haven't explored north of Davenport. As far as I know, track was never laid on the grade. I'd be pleased to learn why GN aborted the completion of the line."
