About the Deschutes Trails Coalition

The mission of the Deschutes Trails Coalition (DTC) is to ensure a future of sustainable trails in Central Oregon. The DTC envisions a deliberately-designed and sustainably-maintained regional trail system where community-wide stewardship acknowledges both the ecological and social limitations of such a system (carrying capacities). Through collaborative strategy, wildlife needs are prioritized, trails are shared equitably among a diverse and growing number of trail users, and a quality experience is maintained, thereby fostering a shared sense of place and community.
