Umatilla River Trail Survey

Thank you for taking the time to participate in this survey for the Umatilla River Trails Project. The purpose of this project is to develop a concept plan for a regional trail system that interconnects Umatilla, Hermiston, Stanfield, and Echo to increase recreation and community livability.


Here are the project goals:

Provide access to recreation opportunities for walking, bicycling, horseback riding, mountain biking, nature viewing, kayaking, fishing and other activities 

Create an interconnected trail system that supports choices for safe, active, non-motorized transportation 

Connect community business districts and neighborhoods with the Umatilla and Columbia Rivers, parks and other regional trails 

● Enhance community health and well-being by providing more opportunities for citizens to get outside and be physically active 

Provide educational opportunities and information that highlights regional and community historical, cultural, and natural resources 

Boost local tourism and economic development by becoming a regional trail destination 


This survey is being conducted to help the project steering committee better understand the needs and desires of the community for a trail system. Your feedback is very valuable and will help guide the project as the concept plan is developed.


Thank you,


Umatilla River Trails Steering Committee
