SISTERS, OR -- The Sisters District Ranger who wanted to build a paved path from Sisters to Black Butte Ranch, has withdrawn her decision. Kristie Miller says there is too little community compromise for the proposal to continue. She says many community members showed a great deal of support for the trail, but objectors failed to agree on a compromise during resolution meetings in recent weeks.
Miller says it could be possible in the future. A broader community led process could develop a proposal for a variety of trails. But, for now, the paved path will not be built.
