This segment includes the last 5 miles that need to be reconnected. Currently the only way for bicyclists to continue east from Wyeth is to travel on the shoulder of Interstate 84 (which is very narrow). It is within the Historic Highway "Columbia River Zone."

Wyeth to Lindsey Creek (under construction)
This State Trail Reconnection Project is currently underway; construction started spring 2017 and is expected to be finished in fall 2019. The State Trail section will connect Gorton Creek Trailhead at Wyeth (I-84 near milepost 51) to Lindsey Creek. It will be a major undertaking including building a trail around Shellrock Mountain on top of the existing bin wall, a 500’ Summit Creek Viaduct (bridge over land), cutting back the hillside at Lindsey Creek to make space for the trail, and making trailhead improvements at Wyeth Campground.

Mitchell Point Segment
Mitchell Point is a formidable mountain that requires a new bridge and/or tunnel to connect the western segments of State Trail to Hood River and The Dalles. This segment has received funds to design a crossing and efforts are beginning now.
Located between the Senator Mark O. Hatfield West and East Trailheads (between Hood River and Mosier) this segment includes over four miles of State Trail.
