The Chehalem Heritage Trails will serve pedestrians, bicyclists, hikers, mountain
bikers, and equestrians, and will connect numerous historical areas and natural areas.
The new trail system will eventually connect to The Intertwine regional trail system.
The overall project also includes restoration of greenways, invasive species eradication,
restoration of native vegetation, water quality improvements, and improvements to
benefit native fish and other species. Additional benefits will be an increase in
tourism and economic development, safe school routes for children, and improved health
through access to recreational facilities.
