The Oregon Natural Desert Association is holding an open house tonight (5:30pm-9:30pm) at their new location in the Old Mill Marketplace (50 SW Bond St., #4) to make a big announcement.
At the event, ONDA will release details on a planned trail that would begin at the High Desert Museum and extend all the way to the Idaho border. The proposed Oregon Desert Trail would run 700 miles, snaking through southern Oregon before turning north and ending at Lake Owyhee State Park, just south of the city of Ontario.
You can learn more about the plan at tonight's open house, which will feature some excellent music from the equally excellently named local band Truck Stop Gravy, in addition to food and drinks.
Here's a look at the proposed map of the trail.
