Comment on Metolius-Windigo Trail

The Oregon Parks and Recreation Department is hosting a July 16 open house to gather public comments on designating the Metolius-Windigo Trail as a State Designated Scenic Trail.

The open house will be held 6-7:30 p.m. at Ray's Food Place, 635 North Arrowleaf Trail in 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. The Oregon Scenic Trails are nonmotorized trails that provide access to national, state or regionally significant scenery and showcase Oregon's natural gems.

Scenic trails are over one mile in length, 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, call Rocky Houston, state trails coordinator, at 503-986-0750 or at This email address is being protected from spambots.
