SATA’s primary focus will be to develop the Salem Greenway Trail (SGT). The SGT is a continuous multi use recreational trail designed for non-motorized recreational travel that will connect Salem to local green corridors and businesses. The SGT aims to provide health enhancing recreational opportunities for all trail users while preserving and improving our local green spaces.
Our current project includes an 8-mile multi-use trail within the Spring Valley Oregon State Park. Future projects include new and improved trails within several Oregon State Parks along the West bank of the Willamette River, starting at Wallace Marine Park in Salem and traveling North along the Willamette River to Grand Island State Park. Trails within the targeted Oregon State Parks are Phase I of the larger SGT project. Future trail extensions from the State Parks intend to connect vineyards and farms in Polk, Yamhill and Marion Counties.
SATA is working with Adventure Maps to draft a map that outlines the SGT corridors.
