Community groups look to restore or expand recreational trails in Umatilla County

East Oregonian - 04-20


Umatilla County has no shortage of outdoor space, but it does lack interconnected network of trails to enjoy it. That was a common theme at an Oregon Recreational Trails Advisory Council at the Tamastslikt Cultural Institute on the Umatilla Indian Reservation Friday, where government officials, nonprofit leaders, and outdoor enthusiasts all bemoaned the dearth of accessible, well-maintained trails for hiking, biking, and horseback riding in their own communities in northeast Oregon and southeast Washington.
