Oregon Trail Arboretum
In Oregon, a bicycle is legally considered a vehicle, and the same Oregon road laws apply. Please “be seen” and practice safe riding. Vehicle traffic, farm equipment and narrow shoulders exist on many Oregon roads, and you may find that construction projects, traffic or other events may cause road conditions or signage to differ from the map results, ride descriptions and directions. For travel options plus weather and road conditions, visit tripcheck.com, call 511 (in Oregon only), 800.977.6368 or 503.588.2941. Routes listed on this website are for informational purposes and intended as a reference guide only.
The City of Echo has been Oregon’s Smallest Tree City USA since 1989 and developed the small arboretum across from the Echo School on Gerone and Neely Lane as part of their Urban Forestry Program. Over 100 cultivars grow there in a forest-like setting with a gazebo featuring art by Chris Huffman, local metal artist, birds and nature. A pair of Osprey return to one of the adjacent football field light standards each year to raise their babies, who stand water over the arboretum from their perch in early spring through summer.
