The Bonneville Trails Foundation
The Bonneville Trails Foundation (BTF) is an officially recognized 501c3 non-profit group with the purpose of promotion and preservation of North Bonneville’s trail network along with the features that make it unique (including the all important caretaking tasks for our special Bigfoot family). Since beginning efforts established in 2006, BTF continues as an unapologetically ambitious group fulfilling a long term vision of making Bonneville a regional trail hub within the Columbia Gorge.
Adventure Park Unveiling 2019 Update
We are excited to announce the unveiling of the “Bonneville Adventure Park” plan. This interactive treehouse structure will serve to become a major link towards the vision of creating a recreational and trail linkage hub within the City of North Bonneville. Official City Council and Mayor support was received with plans now going forward for fundraising and implementation. Stay tuned here and to our Facebook Page on how to get involved with this effort…
Trail Linkage Projects…
Work continues on securing access for the proposed Creekside Connect Trail which would provide direct non-motorized access between North Bonneville’s City Center/Discovery Loop area and the Pacific Crest Trail.

We are currently leading and/or partnering on several projects in the planning phases to include the ones summarized below. For latest updates or to help on any of these projects contact us at Bigfoottrails@outlook.com
The Creekside Trail (B-PCT project): A trail link connecting the city center of North Bonneville to the trail network immediately to the city’s north including the Pacific Crest National Scenic Trail. This project has taken priority due to the closure of access to the Dick Thomas Trail.
The Beacon-Bonneville-Stevenson Connect Trail: A joint effort linking into the Friends of the Gorge Towns to Trails project for the creation of an east-west trail link. This project would establish the first non-motorized connection between the city center of North Bonneville to Beacon Rock State Park to the west and the community of Stevenson Washington to the east.
The Bonneville Adventure Park: A partnership with the City of North Bonneville for a complete upgrade to the community playground area. This project fits into one of our longstanding visions of making trail access more appealing to children and families. See update above for most recent update.
Bonneville Regional Trail Hub Master Plan: This project begins the process towards developing the vision making Bonneville a regional trail hub point within the Columbia River Gorge. Due to it’s prime location and current established facilities with a unique interpretive trail network with a unique Bigfoots theme, Bonneville is set for this ambitious effort to move forward.
