In 2011 the Bear Creek Greenway proudly announced the completion of 17 miles of continuous trail. Area residents and visitors can ride or walk on a complete trail between the dog park in Ashland to Pine Street in Central Point and only navigate across one road (Suncrest Road near Talent).

The currently underway Pine to Upton Project is a 1.4-mile section of trail between Pine Street and Upton Road in Central Point through the Jackson County Expo. A $1.7 million grant has been secured from the ODOT Transportation Enhancements program to complete the project. The Bear Creek Greenway Foundation raised the amount of $190,000 to meet the community match requirement. . Without this community match the grant and project would have been lost.
