About Us:

Sisters is nestled at the base of the majestic Three Sisters and is named for these distinct volcanic peaks in the central Cascades Range. First settled as the Camp Polk military outpost in the mid-1800s, the town of Sisters was built on a foundation of ranching, farming, logging, and accommodating travelers crossing over the Cascades. The city was incorporated in 1946. For more about Sisters’ history, click here

Sisters Trails Alliance

Established in 2001, the Sisters Trails Alliance (STA) is an all-volunteer organization dedicated to planning, constructing and maintaining walking, hiking, cycling and equestrian trails in Sisters Country. The STA believes that trails are an indispensable ingredient of quality of life and economic vibrancy in Sisters Country – providing both healthy recreation and environmentally sound transportation. Its first Trails Plan in 2003 identified some 80 miles of trails for signage and construction. The current Trails Plan, adopted in 2010, proposes an additional 150 miles of trails, pathways and lanes, including commuter links, singletrack, and a paved path from Sisters to Black Butte Ranch.
