New recreational trails are in the works in the Bend neighborhood of Discovery West. One of the newest communities in the region, the development will be the home to several trails that will connect to the greater westside trail system.
Maps (links below) released by Bend Park and Recreation District show two key future trails: Discovery Trail, which connects to existing trails in Discovery Park and carries on to the west of the neighborhood toward Skyliner’s Road; and Manzanita Trail, which provides multiple points of connectivity from the new neighborhood to the northwest.
Plans also include approximately 40 acres of open spaces and a new park. Timing for the new trails and other amenities is to be determined, and all conceptual plans are subject to change.
The Discovery West trail build-out is part of the Park District’s ten-year goal to have one mile of trail for every 1,000 residents in Bend. To meet this goal, 47 more miles of trail will be needed by 2028.
