The Oregon Historic Trails Advisory Council (OHTAC) was established by Executive Order 98-16 to recognize all Oregon historic trails as outlined in ORS 358.057. The council is a nine-member committee appointed by the governor and formed to promote public awareness of the significance of Oregon’s historic trails as well as to advise a variety of public and private agencies and organizations on policy matters.

 

The council is Oregon’s official liaison to other states, associations and federal agencies in acquiring national as well as state recognition of Oregon’s historic trails.

 

The OHTAC represents three National Historic Trails in Oregon—the Lewis and Clark Trail, the Applegate Trail and the Nez Perce Trail—as well as five alternative routes to the Oregon Trail, and seven other major Oregon historic trails.
