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.
