Runway on the Union Lumber Company property in Fort Bragg

The first plane owned by the Union Lumber company landed in Fort Bragg in 1949. Company executives traveled by air from San Francisco to Fort Bragg to oversee mill operations or to go on vacation. Planes landed for 50 years until the mill shut down in 2002. Today the runway is part of the Coastal Trail.
