Haul Road Trail

haul road bend

Project Phase


Project Overview

The district received a grant from Western Federal Lands to improve the Haul Road Trail from McKay Park and west approximately 3.2 miles to the Deschutes National Forest’s boundary.  Trail surfaces will be repaired and the last 1.5 miles will be paved to an accessible standard in order to provide a desirable close-to-home trail opportunity that will reach into the National Forest. Work on this trail is anticipated to begin in the summer of 2021 and finish by the end of that year.

The project is in the final stage of permitting and approval. It is expected to go to bid in spring 2021.

What will impact trail use during construction?

Expect intermittent closures and detours throughout 2021. See the Maps and Reports tab for maps of current and upcoming trail closure locations.

In addition to the trail improvement project, other work such as new roundabout construction will impact trail access. The City of Bend is constructing roundabouts at the intersections of SW Colorado Avenue & SW Columbia Street and SW Simpson Avenue & SW Columbia Street in spring and summer 2021. See project information here.
