Trails Day at the Oregon Capitol

Join trails stakeholders from around the state in Salem to connect with each other and with legislators and staff to share the love of trails and strategize how we can work together to defend our current trails and build the trails we envision. 

Trails Day Platform

  • Oregonians love trails. 74% of Oregonians use local trails and are happier, healthier and more connected to their communities because of it!

  • Oregonians want to keep our trails open! Protect Oregon Recreation with a legislative fix to recreational immunity in the 2024 session.

  • Oregon is home to iconic landscapes and deserves world class trails! The Oregon Signature Trails Inventory shares a vision for how bold investments in trails can create bold returns for Oregonians and Oregon communities. Let’s chart a path forward for investing in our trails!

Trails Day Agenda

  • 9 am-9:15: Arrival; Settle in. (There will be coffee.)

  • 9:15: Welcome from Rep. Helm

  • 9:30- 11am: Legislative Training and Lunch:

Hi John,

We do have Central Oregon partners registered for the event, and when you register, there's an option to request to be put in touch with others from your region to arrange carpools.
