NWTA Sunday Group Rides
Exploring the CZ trail from Scapoose to Vernonia (maybe)
The CZ (Crown Zellerbach) trail is an old converted rail line that runs from Scapoose all the way to Vernonia. It starts of paved for the first couple of miles but gets sketchier the further you go west.
This is an Adventure Ride, most likely involving hike-a-bike and getting lost. Its railroad grade with a few climbs; moderate to fast pace to keep the gravel doubletrack fun!
Its 24 miles one-way to Vernonia, but we will probably start turning back in groups as we hit harder obstacles.
Here is the GPS of the route: http://ridewithgps.com/routes/6386258
Carpooling from Universal Cycles at 2202 E Burnside St to leave by 8 am, or meet at the Scapoose trailhead at 9 am. Directions to Trailhead: http://rideoregonride.com/mountain-biking/cz-trail-crown-zellerbach-trail/
Ride Leader: Dmitriy Zasyatkin firstname.lastname@example.org
Meet at Universal Cycles at 2202 E Burnside St to leave at 9 am or meet 10am at the north entrance gate (approximately 1 mile up from Hwy 30 on the right side (north) of the road).
Ever wanted to check out the Scappoose trails? Come on out for this moderately paced ride. Depending upon who shows up, we can explore trails on the south side, then ride the north side trails. Plan accordingly for the weather, but these trails typically are not overly muddy. We'll ride for 2-3 hours.
