Statewide Trail Plan
Strolling in Portland
From 2003 to 2005, the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department has actively engaged recreational trail providers, interest groups and citizens across the state in a planning effort to complete a statewide trails plan for Oregon.  It is the state´s "official plan for recreational trail management" for the next 10 years, serving as a statewide and regional information and planning tool to assist Oregon recreation providers (local, state, federal and private) in providing trail opportunities and promoting access to Oregon´s trails and waterways.  It also identifies how the state´s limited resources will be allocated for motorized, non-motorized and water trail projects throughout Oregon.
Oregon has taken an innovative approach to statewide trails planning by conducting simultaneous motorized, non-motorized and water trails plans.  Each is a comprehensive study and depiction of the state of recreational trail and non-motorized boating use in Oregon.  The final trails plan Oregon Trails 2005-2014:  A Statewide Action Plan is now available.
