Your Parks. Your Vision.
Did you know that OPRD manages:
6 natural areas
3 Scenic view points
6 scenic corridors
47 trail heads connecting visitors with over 150 miles of spectacular trails
… and more in the Columbia River Gorge.
A long-term plan is needed to guide future resource management and recreational uses on all of these lands. In the planning for these parks OPRD is taking a comprehensive look at natural, scenic area and cultural resource conditions as well as management needs, outdoor recreation trends in the region, community partnerships, and related ideas and concerns identified through public input.
The OPRD planning team needs your help. We want to know: why you visit, what you do while you are here and what brings you back. Please share with us why you love the Gorge and what opportunities and challenges you see in the future for the beautiful scenic area we are so lucky to have right here in Oregon.
