NWTA Mission

To create, enhance, and protect mountain bike riding opportunities; to advocate for trail access; to promote responsible mountain biking; and to build, maintain, and ride sustainable trails.

Who We Are

Northwest Trail Alliance is an all-volunteer, non-profit organization based in Portland, Oregon. Created in 1988 as a grassroots club of local riders, we have grown into a one of the largest regional advocacy groups, stewarding trails and advocating for trail access across NW Oregon & SW Washington; covering the Portland Metro Area, to as far North as Mt St Helens, to the Western slopes of Mt Hood & as far West as Seaside.

In December 2009, Northwest Trail Alliance became the first International Mountain Bike Association (IMBA) Chapter in the Northwest.

Our Vision

  • For the Portland area, NW Oregon and SW Washington to become a recognized and acclaimed haven for mountain biking and off-road cycling.
  • To create awareness and a positive attitude towards all types of off-road cycling — with other trail users, with land managers and agencies, and with the general public.
  • To become a role model for other mountain bike and trail advocacy groups around the country.
