Just created a Cause on Facebook which you can join and share with your friends to spread the word about helping build single-track trails in the mountain biking area at L.L. Stub Stewart State Park .  

There is effort under way to construct 1.5 miles of single-track (part of which will be used for accessing the proposed Freeride skill area).    Spread the word!

Get involved.  Do more!  Whine less.

Here's what the Cause looks like on Facebook...

2009 dig days at Stub for mtb zone trails

pin flagged section thru cedar treesOur goal is to have ridable single-track out-and-back style trail in place by June 6th for the National Trails Day / State Parks Day celebration at L.L. Stub Stewart State Park.  As build out continues, the mountain bike zone trails will link with existing shared-use trails (perhaps Banks-Vernonia trail) that will make for a larger loop.  The current segments that will be built this year will eventually serve dual use - both as part of a family fun cross-country and all-mountain trail network as well as access trail for freeride users heading up slope to the "freeride zone" (see note below).

With that objective in mind, and with the go ahead from park trail manager, we (mountain biking trail builder volunteers) will focus on benchcutting single-track and clearing maintenance access corridor during these 2009 work party "dig days" for the currently under construction mountain biking zone at Stub:

* Saturday, Feb 28

* Sunday, March 29

* Saturday, April 18

* Sunday, May 3

* Saturday, May 23

* Sunday, June 28

All dig days - sign-in at Clayhill Horse Parking area at 9am - orientation at 9:30am to review days tasks.  No parking fee for volunteers.  Please no pets or small children.   Respect other park users.

* Driving Directions * Park brochure with trail map and more info (this does not include mtb zone info)

See Event Calendar for details about each build day.   Keep an eye on the message  board for additional build days - for example, when project managers have specific tasks to knock out and organizing a team for upcoming weekend, etc.

 

Note: There are continuing dialogs about vision for advanced feature challenge trails and skill areas.  Upon approval by Oregon Parks & Recreation management, local trail build volunteers stand ready to schedule additional build days to focus on those proposed trails and features.  W.T.F.'s vision for these additional skill trails was presented to OPRD in 2006.  Click here to review the vision document.  Additional due diligence is currently taking place within OPRD.

Polls

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.
