In 1994, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) acquired a portion of an abandoned Oregon and Southern Eastern railway line that was once used to haul ore, logs, supplies, and passengers between Disston and Cottage Grove. As part of a rails-to-trails project, about 15.6 miles of multiple-use trail was developed, including 5 miles that run alongside Dorena Lake. The paved trail is attractive not only to mountain bicyclists and horseback riders, but also to road bicyclists and even a few in-line skaters.
