Welcome to Build Lebanon Trails

Build Lebanon Trails is a volunteer group working to design, build, and maintain more than 50 miles of trails in and around Lebanon, Oregon. Our mission is to bring more opportunities for health and fitness to Lebanon residents by providing beautiful places to walk, run, bike, jog, or just enjoy nature.

We invite you to use the trails, to attend our events, and to get involved in a big or small way.

What our community says about Lebanon's trails

I wanted to thank you for all of your efforts- impressive! Your vision and trails were a huge reason why I purchased my home in Lebanon in 2018. I live on Mountain River Drive and utilize the nearby trails often- I absolutely love what you all have done. You have and are creating something wonderful for this community that will leave a positive and lasting impression on the residents and visitors of our city. Thank you, thank you, thank you! — Mariah

I really enjoy the trails. I've been a regular for a couple years, and I recall the Old Mill Trail before it was modified. I think the maintenance is excellent, and all the volunteers do wonderful work improving the vegetation. Most folks are good about picking up after their dogs, and litter is minimal. The same goes for the Cheadle system!
Thank you all at BLT for helping make this community welcoming and pleasant! — Chuck

I love all the trails available in Lebanon. I tell everybody I meet about them. 😀  — Lynet

I love walking and trails are so important to the community so it's one of the first things I check out.

Lebanon is a beautiful place with beautiful trails. What a wonderful way for a Senior to get out and walk the dog and the nature . Thank you for all your hard work. — Sandradee
