Oregon Parks and Recreation Department seeks public comment on designation of scenic trail in central Oregon

 

Bend, OR – The Oregon Parks and Recreation Department (OPRD) will hold an open house July 29 to receive public comment on the proposed designation of the Kiwa Butte/Dina Moe Humm Trail as a State Designated Regional Scenic Trail. The trail is primarily used for mountain biking and is located southwest of Bend.

 

The open house will be held from 6:00 to 7:30 p.m. at the Visit Bend Office at 750 NW Lava Rd., Suite 160 in Bend. The feedback gathered will be used to assist the Oregon Recreation Trails Advisory Council (ORTAC) in making a recommendation to the Oregon State Parks and Recreation Commission.

 

The State Trail designation program was established in 1971 as part of the Recreational Trails Act to promote Oregon’s scenic beauty and outdoor recreation opportunities. Oregon Regional Trails are non-motorized trails that provide close-to-home recreation opportunities while connecting communities, recreation sites, schools, and other destinations or trails. Regional trails must be more than five miles in length, open to the public, substantially complete, and located on public lands or right-of-way easements.

 

For more information about the Kiwa Butte/Dina Moe Humm Trail, or to submit a comment on the designation, contact Kent Howes (vice-chair of ORTAC) at 541-550-9433 or Rocky Houston (OPRD State Trails Coordinator) at 503-986-0750.
