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 do Lebanon's trails mean to you?

Of course WE think our trails offer a huge benefit to our wonderful town and it's been our vision since 2005 to proudly build and help maintain them for the City. But what do YOU think? Enter your opinion here, we'll read them all and publish a few right here!

Find a Trail in Lebanon

Walk? Run? Hike? Bike? Take your dog? Wheelchair-accessible? Get information about Lebanon trails here.

Build Lebanon Trails hosts monthly public events, where you can walk with a friendly group of people. Bring your kids. Friendly dogs on a leash are allowed at most events. Often earphones are distributed so you can find out more about the trail as you walk.

Help build and maintain trails on our work days. Say hi to us if you spot a BLT volunteer in a yellow vest on the trail. Subscribe to our newsletter to get event notifications and other news.
