Westside Trail Federation has been given the nod from Oregon State Parks and Recreation to commence development of a Freeride/Gravity mountain Bike trail network at Stub Stewart State Park.  The development of this ground-breaking pilot program between Westside Trail Federation and Oregon State Parks and Recreation has been in the works for four years.  This development of a Freeride mountain bike trail network is a first within an Oregon State Park.

Phase 1 of the construction plan for the Stub Stewart Freeride Area includes construction of both Beginner and Intermediate-level Freeride trails, including the development of a beginner “session” area with access trail to reach top of the hill where Freeride trails are located.  Phase 2 of the development plan includes the development of advanced-level trail options as well as a secondary “session” area.  The project area has over 200 vertical feet and has the ability to support many trails utilizing the unique landscape.  For more information about the build plan at Stub-

IRS Approved!

Hells YES!Westside Trail Federation now Federally recognized as a 501 (C)(3) non-profit organization!!!

After 15 months of working with the IRS, we are pleased to announce that we are now a 501(C)(3).  We are even happier to be finished with revising our form 1023 with the IRS, boy was that FUN.


What does this mean exactly?  Now individuals and businesses can "write-off" donations gifted to Westside Trail Federation.  Donating to w.t.f. has now become all that more attractive.  We are now looking for people/businesses to donate materials (lumber, fasteners, tools, etc.) for the upcoming Freeride Area at Stub Stewart State Park.  If interested, please contact This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

Other benefits include land managers now have greater confidence that W.T.F. is a viable public charity which they can depend on being around for the long-term.  Additionally, we now have the ability to seek grant funding which requires applicants to hold 501(c)(3) status, such as the Federal RTP grant program.


Looking forward to a great build season!

Visit for info and to submit your comments.   Public input needed NOW.

Proposal is for mountain biking specific trails.  They've hired Gravity Logic to handle trail design.  This is same team which planned the Whistler mountain bike park trails.

Update 3/3/2011:  "Big news today on the Timberline Mountain Bike Trails and Skills Park Project!  The USFS has posted the "Legal Notice of Proposed Action" for the project, which marks the beginning of the official 30-day public comment period.

You demonstrated "need" for the project with your initial comments and emails. Now we need to demonstrate support for the documented plan within the next 30 days.  Even if you sent a comment already, we need you to send another comment during this period for your thoughts to fully count in the approval process."

Update 4/24/2010: "Friends of Mount Hood" group is opposed to plan for bike park at Timberline.   This same group stopped development of trails at other location.   W.T.F. asks you to join the facebook group "Timberline Bike Park, NO is not an option!" to show your support in favor of building mountain biking trails, and also to submit your comments and ideas (give Timberline your support!) at .

Would you be willing to pay for a Trailhead Parking Pass for the ability to park and shuttle a Downhill/Freeride mountain bike destination trail network on public lands? Proceeds of the revenue would pay for Oregon Department of Forestry staff time.
