A TRAIL THAT WILL BUILD COMMUNITY
Imagine a beautiful trail connecting the towns of Joseph & Enterprise, Oregon. A multi-use community trail for families with strollers, for elderly, for disabled, for bike commuters, and those wishing to keep their New Year's Resolutions to stay healthy.
The Joseph Branch Community Trail, in Phase One, will follow the Wallowa Union Railroad for 6 miles from Enterprise to Joseph, Oregon. This simple trail alongside the publicly-owned rail-line will provide a safe, unique, and beautiful experience for walkers, cyclists, and horseback riders.
This 6 mile segment is Phase One of a larger trail project. When completed, the trail will be 63 miles from Joseph to Elgin, Oregon.
