Yes! Let's see this trail happen! Join the Joseph Branch Trail Consortium

Why become a member of the Joseph Branch Trail Consortium (JBTC)? Without a Recreation Department or District in Wallowa County, efforts like this trail are up to the private sector. The JBTC is tax deductible 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization that is developing and will be maintaining this trail. Your Membership will:

  • Help demonstrate Community Support to State and Federal Grant Funders to fund the construction of the trail

  • Support the development of the trail (community outreach & communication, staffing, etc.)

  • Eventually support the maintenance of the trail

The JBTC’s mission is to add a 63 mile multi-use recreational trail alongside the railroad tracks in the Joseph Branch Railroad Corridor from Joseph to Elgin, OR. With citizen input, the hard work of our volunteers, and your generous financial support, the Joseph Branch Rail with Trail will:

  • Improve transportation safety and walk/bike-ability in our community

  • Connect the communities of Joseph and Enterprise, Oregon in Phase One (and eventually all communities in the Wallowa Valley)

  • Provide recreational opportunities including biking, hiking and horseback riding

  • Connect the Nez Perce National Historic Trail with the Homeland Project (Wallowa Band Nez Perce Trail Interpretive Center) in Wallowa, OR

  • Connect to ODOT's Wallowa Lake Pedestrian/Bike Trail and the Enterprise Wildlife Refuge & Fish Hatchery

  • Promote economic development in the region
