Sisters Trails Alliance
Established in 2001, the Sisters Trails Alliance (STA) is an all-volunteer organization dedicated to planning, constructing and maintaining walking, hiking, cycling and equestrian trails in Sisters Country. It operates as an independent Community Partner Program of the Sisters Parks and Recreation District (SPRD). The STA believes that trails are an indispensable ingredient of quality of life and economic vibrancy in Sisters Country – providing both healthy recreation and environmentally sound transportation. Its first Trails Plan in 2003 identified some 80 miles of trails for signage and construction. The current Trails Plan, adopted in 2010, proposes an additional 150 miles of trails, pathways and lanes, including commuter links, singletrack, and a paved path from Sisters to Black Butte Ranch.
The Sisters Trails Alliance works closely with the US Forest Service, the City of Sisters, the Sisters Chamber of Commerce, the Sisters Schools District and many other community organizations and businesses to implement its plans. Everything the STA does depends on the passion, time and money of community volunteers and businesses. To see how you can become involved check out our Upcoming Events & Activities. Please join us in our work to enhance trails in Sisters Country – contact us at SPRD (541 549 2091) or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
