Volunteers are working to ready some mountain biking trails in time for a June 2 opening date.
The Westside Trail Federation, Northwest Trail Alliance, and the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department have partnered up to construct three freeride trails, the first agreement of its kind in the state parks system, reported The Oregonian.
Most of the construction in the L.L. Stub Steward Freewide area is being done by hand by Westside Trail Federation volunteers, reported the newspaper. The federation consists of a group of bike riders who focus on building and maintain single-track, mountain bike trails. Freeride trails are narrow, windy, and typically feature steep paths that go through the forest.
The group hopes to have “Greenhorn,” a trail for beginners and the immediate level “Drip Torch” set to ride by June 2. Trail build days, for those who want to volunteer, are set for May 6, 19, and 27. Click here for more information.
