The Oregon Parks and Recreation Department will hold a public meeting for a proposed 29-mile loop Madras Mountain Views Bikeway at 5:30 p.m. March 27 at the Madras Aquatic Center Community Room, 1195 SE Kemper Way in Madras.

The proposed scenic bikeway passes through Madras, Culver, Metolius and past the entrance of Cove Palisades State Park.  Information on the designation process for scenic bikeways and a draft of the bikeway plan are available at www.oregonscenicbikeways.org
