Thank you for your continued support for the draft Master Plan for Pilot Butte Scenic Viewpoint. Your past input, concerns and feedback have been very helpful in the development of the proposals. We would again like your feedback. Please fill out the survey below.

Please rate the following aspects of the proposal.
1= I fully agree
2= This is on the right track but I have some reservations
3 = I am neutral
4 = I have serious concerns or reservations

Question Title

* 1. No new parking will be added to the park. A gate will be added at the SE entry to discourage people who are not visiting the park from using this lot. Future needs will be reassessed as they arise.

Question Title

* 2. ADA parking only will be added to the west side to allow universal access to the low-gradient trail network on the west side.

Question Title

* 3. New access points at Derek and Lafayette are formalized to coincide with the City of Bend’s Low-Stress Greenway, and encourage walking and cycling to the park.

Question Title

* 4. The western portion of the Base Trail is proposed to be moved to the west to align with a well used social trail along the west boundary. This portion of the Base Trail will connect the crosswalk on Hwy 20 to Juniper Elementary School. It is proposed to be widened and hardened (compacted gravel or similar).

Question Title

* 5. The Base Trail impacted by the fire will be closed for 4-5 years during restoration efforts. A new connector trail will link the Base Trail to the Road Trail, allowing hikers to avoid the fire affected areas and still complete the Base loop.

Question Title

* 6. Two well used social trails on the NW and SW will be formalized and connected to the Base and Nature Trails.

Question Title

* 7. Although it will take time, all other social trails will be obliterated using physical blocking elements (trees and boulders) and vegetation.

Question Title

* 8. To support the goal of allowing people of all mobilities to reach the summit, the Summit Road and Trail will remain a vehicular, pedestrian and cycling path of travel.

Question Title

* 9. Due to challenging topography the Summit Road and Trail will remain at their existing width. To reduce pedestrian/vehicular conflict, improvements will be made to the surface and quality of the trail. Physical solutions such as speed bumps and dome markers, the use of sharrows and color will demarcate the roadway from the trail.

Question Title

* 10. Universally accessible trail loops at a gradient less than 12% are proposed to be developed at the east and west entries and at the summit viewpoint.

Question Title

* 11. A new trailhead is proposed to be developed at the SW Summit Road entry.

Question Title

* 12. The burned trailhead at the SE portion of the park will be rebuilt in connection with a new exercise area.

Question Title

* 13. The area north of the playing field is zoned for future active recreation. The development could take different forms, to be determined closer to its development.

Question Title

* 14. Areas where there is considerable social trail impact will be actively discouraged and cut off. On trails this is proposed to take the form of downed trees and natural obstructions and signage.

Question Title

* 15. Impact around the Summit Viewpoint will be mitigated using a low barrier (fence or similar).

Question Title

* 16. Any other feedback?
