Falls Creek Trail Brush-Out Ride
May 5 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
Come join us for a hearty helping of a ride on one of the iconic trails in the Gifford Pinchot National Forest, along with a side of stewardship. This trail has been and NWTA favorite for years, and we helped to improve the ride experience in 2016 by spearheading reroute from a mid-trail dirt road descent, onto four miles of bike-optimized singletrack.
This May will be holding a full day ride where we will also brush out the trail and clear any downed trees from the winter. We will also be working to bring an abandoned road back into service for bikes in order to ease congestion at the multi-usergroup trailhead. Once back at the cars, the grill will get fired up and you’ll enjoy chips, brats and beers!
The full ride will be ~20 miles as we will be climbing the scenic Wind River Road before turning onto the dirt at Oldman Pass SnoPark. Due to the stewardship aspect of the day, this will be a social paced ride with regroups at every intersection as necessary. If you’ve never experienced the Falls Creek Trail, this is a great opportunity to do so!
Meet at the pull out ~3 miles past the the turn-off for the the trailhead (FS Road 152) at 10am (look for the NWTA sign).
