Pawn Trail is a 0.7 mile loop trail located near Florence, OR that offers the chance to see wildlife. The trail is good for all skill levels and primarily used for hiking and walking.
Easy hike along the north fork of the Siuslaw river with views of giant old growth trees. The name Pawn came from an early 1900s community near the current location of the trail. Pawn is an acronym for the four families who were instrumental in establishing a post office on the upper portion of the North Fork Siuslaw River above Minerva. The four families were, the Pooles, Akerleys, Worthingtons, and Nolands. Marion Woosley ran the post office so the "W" eventually came to stand for Woosley.
