The Deschutes National Forest’s Bend-Fort Rock Ranger District said Tuesday it is seeking public comments through April 2, regarding a proposed 3.6-mile paved path from Knott Road on Bend’s south end to the Lava Lands Visitor Center.

In a scoping document released Tuesday, the Forest Service entity says the 10-foot-wide multi-use path for non-motorized travel would provide connectivity to recreation sites and other trails in the area.

The path would parallel the west side of Highway 97 and provide transportation options between visitor destinations such as the High Desert Museum, Lava Butte and the visitor center, District Ranger Kevin Larkin said.
