Explore the Jacksonville Woodlands trail system in Historic Jacksonville, Oregon
In 1989, alarmed by the prospect of development destroying the scenic wooded hillsides surrounding their National Historic Landmark City, the citizens of Jacksonville, Oregon rallied to form the non-profit Jacksonville Woodlands Association. During the past 2 decades the Woodlands Association has preserved 22 parcels of forested open space (320 acres) and has constructed 18 miles of connecting interpretive and recreational trails surrounding 70% of the town’s historic district. The Association’s preservation efforts have attracted national attention and has set the standard for community land preservation in Oregon. Jacksonville’s 1100-acre Forest Park, located one mile west of our historic downtown, offers 15 miles of grand vistas, hiking trails, small creeks, the town’s old reservoir, interpretive markers, and remnants of old gold mines. Forest Park is a great place to ride bikes or horses or to take an extended hike. Maps of Jacksonville’s extensive trail system are available at the city’s information center, various trail heads or by contacting the JWA at: firstname.lastname@example.org or by mailing a request to: JWA, P.O. Box 1210, Jacksonville, Oregon.
