One of the region's older trails is up for consideration as part of Oregon's system of State Designated Scenic Trails. 

The Sterling Mine Ditch Trail began life in Jacksonville's mining days, alongside the ditch built to carry water to hydraulic mining operations. 

The public can help decide if the trail will be included in the state system. 

An open house is set for July 8th at the Jacksonville library.
