Trail maintenance day - Sandy Ridge Season Opener
Come join us for the first Sandy Ridge Trail Maintenance day of the year!
NWTA invites you to a Sandy Ridge trail maintenance day , Saturday, December 8th, 2012.
We'll be working with BLM and IMBA resources to perform maintenance on Hide & Seek. Devon from the Oregon Enduro Series will also be there to help give back for the race series and will have some swag as a bonus for some lucky volunteers.
Come on out and help be a part of making the trails you ride even better.
Expectations? A few hours of trail work from 10am-2pm. We'll get you and your bike up to the work area and then you can ride afterwards. Never been to a work party? No problem, come and we'll provide instruction.
Here's a link to the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Sandy Ridge Trail System map that describes the planned and completed Sandy Ridge trails. The map now includes the Quid Pro Flow trail, as well as the 338 Loop and Hide & Seek. For more information about these trails see the BLM Website.
