Banks/Vernonia Trail Extension

This "Rail to Trails" project has completed the existing Banks-Vernonia Linear Trail, which currently ends 2/3 of a mile north of the city of Banks. The improvements have connected the city of Banks with other destinations along the 26-mile long linear trail; including Buxton, L.L. Stub Stewart State Park, and the city of Vernonia. It will provide pedestrians, equestrians and bicyclists with a pleasant and safe travel route. 

The Banks-Vernonia Trail Extension included the following:

  • A landscaped trailhead at the intersection of Banks and Sellers Road
  • A parking facility at the Banks trailhead
  • A ten-foot wide paved path
  • A parallel four-foot wide unpaved equestrian path
  • Replacement of the train trestle crossing West Fork Dairy Creek with a concrete bridge structure
