Open house set to discuss special designation for the Peterson Ridge West Trail

April 21, 2015

Oregon Parks and Recreation Department is hosting an open house on May 6 to seek public comments on the designation of the Peterson Ridge West Trail in Sisters as a State Designated Regional Trail. The open house will be from 6-7:30 p.m. at the Aspen Lakes Golf Course Clubhouse, 16900 Aspen Lakes Drive, Sisters.

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 Scenic Trails are non-motorized trails that provide access to national, state or regionally significant scenery and showcase Oregon's natural gems. Scenic trails are longer than a mile, 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 contact Rocky Houston, State Trails Coordinator, at 503-986-0750.
