MANNING - Several Oregon state agencies have teamed up to refurbish and expand access to the Manning Trailhead on the Banks-Vernonia State Trail. The project is expected to nearly triple the capacity for vehicles at the busy access point for the trail, which is also where the in-development Salmonberry Trail could potentially begin.

With funds from the Washington County Visitor's Association, Oregon Parks and Recreation Department (OPRD) and Travel Oregon, the project is poised to be unveiled at a grand opening celebration on Friday, June 14 at 2 p.m.

The ribbon-cutting ceremony will feature a free seven-mile round trip guided bicycle ride to and from L. L. Stub Stewart State Park, which is billed as a family-friendly event for people of all abilities.

Riders will ride a . . .
