The Oregon Parks and Recreation Department (OPRD) is having an open house on the Oregon Coast Trail to seek public comments on the designation of the trail as a State Designated Scenic Trail. The open house will be held April 9, 2014 at the Driftwood Public Library, 801 SW Hwy 101 #201, Lincoln City, OR 97367 from 6:00 PM to 7:30 PM.
The State Trail Designation program was established in 1971 as part of the Recreational Trails Act to help promote Oregon's exceptional scenic beauty and excellent outdoor recreation opportunities. Oregon Regional Trails are non-motorized trails that offer close-to-home recreation while connecting to other trails, communities, recreation sites, schools and other destinations. Regional trails are more than five miles long, open to the public, substantially complete, and lie on public lands or public rights-of-way or easements.
The Oregon Recreation Trails Advisory Council will use public comments gathered to assist in their recommendation to the Oregon Parks and Recreation Commission. For more information or to comment on the designation please, Rocky Houston, State Trails Coordinator, at (503) 986-0750 or at firstname.lastname@example.org
