Yellowstone Trail Heritage Days promotes the historic national automobile trail that passed through St. Croix County in the early 1910s. Much like Route 66, the Yellowstone Trail carried travelers from one end of the country to another (Plymouth Rock to Puget Sound) before the advent of freeways. Begun in 1912, this trail featured one special stop at Yellowstone National Park. Hudson shared an important role in this unique road’s history as it passed across the Old Dike Road and toll bridge, climbed up Walnut and Vine Streets to County Road UU and Hwy 12, leading to Roberts, Hammond, Baldwin, Woodville and beyond.
