Maps and Updates

We will be adding the BLT Cheadle Lake 5/10K Fun Run/Walk and Kids Obstacle Dash maps soon! We are sorry for the delay. The 5K route has changed a little. The 10K is not the 5K loop twice; the route goes through several areas of Cheadle Lake Park.

If you still haven’t registered yet, you can register at getmeregistered or click on our event information for other registration options. This year is chip timed!

We will also be adding maps of our trails and updates in the near future. If you haven’t checked us out on Facebook, at Lebanon Trails Committee and BLT Cheadle Lake Run.

BLT Survey and Public Meeting Invite

We have prepared and invite you to complete a Build Lebanon Trails survey. The survey will aid us with current and future community needs and it should take fewer than 10 minutes to complete. In addition, there is a space to share your thoughts about trails, walking and outdoor recreation in the Lebanon area.

You are also invited to join our Lebanon Trails Committee meetings held on the first Tuesday of each month. April’s first Tuesday is April 1st (AKA April Fools Day), but this is no joke, and none of us are fools. April also introduces our new 630pm start time at the Samaritan Lebanon Community Hospital back meeting rooms. These public meetings are a great opportunity for you to learn more about the 50 miles of trails throughout Lebanon and what we are currently working on.

We want to share with you our vision and also hear what you have to say about the trails. This is the place where you can:

  • express your ideas or concerns
  • become a volunteer
  • learn about trails and projects

We look forward to having you join our meeting. We would like to answer questions you may have.

April 12th Hike at Peterson Butte!!!

You will not want to miss out on the beautiful scenery
Petersons Butte SW

Time for the annual Peterson Butte Hike! Join us on Saturday, April 12th at 10:00am for the most popular Build Lebanon Trails Hike. The top of the butte provides some of the best views around the Valley. Don’t forget your camera and binoculars!!!

The hike will take around 2 hours and cover a distance of 2 ½ miles, including an elevation change of around 1000 feet. This is a more challenging hike that involves rocky surfaces and uneven footing. Be sure to wear footwear and clothing appropriate for the conditions.

Poison oak is known to be along the route, so keep an eye out. By request of the land-owners, please no dogs on this hike.

Meet on the north side of the butte; just about a mile west of the Lebanon Airport. At the bend, do not turn, but go straight on to Polly Farm Lane. Parking is limited; please carpool if possible!

Look for the BLT Event signs!!

We will be hiking to North Butte just above Sweet Home.  It will about a 3 mile round trip hike on dirt/gravel road and trail, which could be a bit muddy if the weather continues as it is.  We will meet at Gedney Boat Ramp at 10:00 and caravan up to the start.  Road to the start is gravel and the start is only about a 5 minute drive from Gedney.  We will plan to have some cookies and hopefully hot drinks at the end for the hikers.
