Advocacy Alert! – Survey for Molalla Forest Road Development Plan

Message from City of Canby Bicycle and Pedestrian Citizen Advisory Committee

Deadline January 15th

Your input is requested regarding the development of pedestrian, equestrian, and cycling infrastructure with the doubling in length of the Molalla Logging Road Path in the Canby area thanks to a 2017 land donation.

This is an important next step in completing the vision of the Molalla River Pathway to the City of Molalla and the Molalla River Scenic area. Second, it is a much safer route south of Canby and links to bicycle rides including Sawtell Rd., Wildcat Rd., Mt Angel, Woodburn and the Wooden Shoe Tulip farm. The trail would be similar to the Crown Zeller trail that would stretch from Canby to past Molalla.  This would be a fun gravel type ride with paved and gravel sections.

The Molalla Forest Road (MFR) is a historical logging road that connects the Willamette River just north of the City of Canby to the Molalla Recreation Area located south of the City of Molalla. In 2020, the City of Canby received a grant to create a plan for trail improvements along the Traverso section of the MFR. The City of Canby will be asking for public input as Pathway concepts are developed to ensure the plan is supported by the community. Once the draft plan is complete, Canby City Council will ultimately vote on whether to adopt the plan. If adopted, the City of Canby, Clackamas County, and partners will seek funding for more advanced engineering design to move the project towards implementation. – City of Canby Bicycle and Pedestrian Citizen Advisory Committee
