Thank you for your interest. Stay tuned for more work parties and events at Rocky Point

Saturday November 16th 9am-2pm

 

Join us along with long time NWTA supporter & event sponsor Fat Tire Farm for the first official work party at Rocky Point open to all NWTA members!

Rocky Point has 20 + miles of trails that have been maintained by a small group of dedicated riders and builders for many years. Now that the NWTA has signed a lease on the property we can officially welcome all NWTA members to ride and help maintain these trails. For this first work party, we will be working to maintain and improve the trails that are currently there. We will also be reclaiming some small sections of trail that were lost during an ice storm several years ago.

Along with the work party, we will be offering a course to train individuals to become Trail Build Crew Leaders. If you are already an intermediate or experienced trail builder and ready to take the next step we would love to help. Our course will be taught by our Trail Sustainability Institute. This will give you the tools you need to lead a crew at a future work party. We hope that you will use your new found knowledge to help NWTA build more trail in the future. Make sure to indicate your interest in the registration form.
