Rob Kerr / The Bulletin Mountain bike rider Chad Cheeney rides a small trail south out from under the U.S. Highway 20 bridge on the west side of the Deschutes River in Tumalo Thursday evening. The discovery of archaeological sites has disrupted the progress of the development of a 1.2 mile trail designed to connect the town of Tumalo with Tumalo State Park.
Rob Kerr / The Bulletin A trail along the west bank of the Deschutes River south of the U.S. Highway 20 bridge Thursday evening marks the location of an improved trail designed to connect the town of Tumalo with Tumalo State Park. Archaeological sites disrupted the trail's development, but planning is back on to get the trail ready in 2015.
Rob Kerr / The Bulletin Chris Biere, a Tumalo resident of a rental home located on the west side of the Deshutes River south of the U.S. Highway 20 bridge, pointed out locations where recent archaeological sites were designated, one of which is the pile of rocks in the lower right of this picture. A recreational path designed to connect the town of Tumalo with Tumalo State Park is likely to be constructed nearby in 2015.
