TRAIL NINJAs @ STUB

A Trail Ninja is described as an expert in the art of trail building, agile, stealthy, nimble, and master of Rogue Hoe & Mcloud. This weekends Trail Ninja mission at Stub was a success.  We combined mountain biking with trail work.  We did dirt work re-building bermed corners and enhanced the flow of the Shoofly Trail at Stub. Thanks to David Rogers (Stub Stewart LST) our tools were staged

CZ Trail Update

Wayne Naillon’s legacy continues.  Construction is beginning soon on improvements to the Crown Zellerbach Trail (CZ Trail) between Scappoose and Vernonia that will include bike repair stations, improved signage, and other Trailhead improvements.  The $6,000 that we raised in Wayne’s memory was used as the cornerstone match for a $150,000 Oregon Parks and Recreation Department
