In 2007, the City of Vernonia approached Westside Trail Federation about helping develop the bike skills park near Vernonia Lake.    The vision for the park had already  been established, and funding secured through Oregon Parks & Recreation grant- thanks to the efforts of Ric Balfour.

Park planning has been lead by Alta Planning+Design and W.T.F. members have provided input into park design.

The vision includes dual slalom course, dirt jumps, and freeride skill features.  From beginner to advanced features.   The site is location of an old lumber mill - long since gone and most everything cleared from the area - so there's potential to utilize some urban features in the bike park's perimeter trails.

Some "pre-build" photos of various locations within the bike park...  There were some existing trails in place used by local kids.  These are undeveloped trails.

There is MUCH potential for this area as a bike park!   It's relatively flat, but tons of dirt donated by local contractors can fix that gravity deficiency!  The city is excited about providing a bike skills park that local youth (and adults) can enjoy.
