Proposal for Riverview Natural Area

The Northwest Trail Alliance (NWTA) is pleased to present our proposal for the Riverview Natural
Area. Our proposal consists of an illustrative map and a summary of the proposed system of
trails and bike features. Riverview presents a unique opportunity to provide a range of diverse
experiences for mountain bikers in the urban core which is currently lacking, and implement
policies outlined in Portland’s Bicycle Master Plan and broader planning goals.

Sandy Ridge: New east side trails open, new map - July 4th, 2013

Two new trails are available for public use at Sandy Ridge Trail System (SRTS) as of July 4th, 2013.  These trails, "Follow the Leader" and "Flow Motion", add to both the advanced/technical and "flow" attributes of the SRTS trail portfolio, bringing the total available trail distance up to 15 miles.

Follow the Leader: A 1.65 mile advanced trail that features a challenging double black diamond segment.  Riders start at the upper info kiosk and traverse a couple scree fields before fording Little Joe Creek.  From there, the trail drops 350 feet in the next mile with some exposure, big grade reversals and plenty of opportunities for skilled riders to get off the ground.

Flow Motion: A 0.75 mile intermediate flow trail with incredible soil and  more than fifteen berms.   The trail drops 275 feet through a nice Doug fir and hemlock forest before crossing the road and tying directly into lower Hide and Seek Cut.  Great pedal to payoff ratio, with an easy session opportunity using Homestead Road.  This is another trail cut in by IMBA Trail Solutions master trailbuilder Jason Wells with hand-finsishing/shaping by NWTA trail volunteers at our May Trail Maintenance day.

New maps coming for Stub Stewart State Park!

New maps will include detail for the "Mountain Bike Core Area" with the cross-country single track trails and freeride/all-mountain skill area trails shown!

Here's latest draft shared by park ranger heading the map update project...
