WELCOME TO THE SALMONBERRY TRAIL VIDEOS
Tony Hyde, Former Mayor of Vernonia, Oregon tells the story of one of the most memorable community meetings he ever attended.
When the concept of the Banks Vernonia was first proposed at a local meeting it was met with such fierce opposition that the State Police had to be called in. Subsequently, the idea was then shelved for a decade.
The Salmonberry Trail was a focus of conversation last week on set at the Tualatin Valley Community Television studios. In this clip, "Cyclogy Today" TV host and Northwest Bicycle Safety Council president , Ann Morrow, interviews Doug Decker about the history of the Port of Tillamook Bay Railway and the future of the proposed Salmonberry Trail. Decker discusses his role as development director plus the challenges and opportunities the project brings.
Elected officials, community leaders and others make the case for repurposing the damaged Coast Range rail corridor as a multi-use trail.

Wheeler Mayor Stevie Burden, Banks Mayor Pete Edison, and City Manager of Tillamook Paul Wyntergreen speak about what the Salmonberry Trail means to their communities, Oregon, and why they are enthusiastic supporters of the proposed multi-use pathway where construction is scheduled to start in the City of Tillamook this year.
The proposed Salmonberry Trail project is gaining momentum and support . In 2007, what was once a railroad through some of Oregon's most remote forest was wrecked beyond cost-effective repair by severe weather.
