The Ribbon Cutting Ceremony held in September was a success!

We were excited to announce the opening of two more miles of the Historic Highway State Trail from Viento State Park east in September. ODOT, the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department, and project partners hosted a public ribbon cutting with kids activities to celebrate.

The event featured a 6-mile bike tour by Portland Bicycle Club from the Wyeth Trailhead, keynote speakers, food by Empanadas Maria Elba, information booths, a campground open house, and a kid’s bike information and activity station. 

You can now use the two additional miles of trail from Viento State Park east toward Mitchell Point. We want to thank Columbia Area Transit for providing transit service to the event and everyone that made it out to celebrate with us!
