Cascade Locks Weekend Work PARTY a success!

That’s right – we’re emphasizing the PARTY part after a magnificent weekend of trail work and fun for all. 

A team of over 30 NWTA volunteers came together to do work on the new Cascade Locks trails in the Columbia River Gorge. The team worked on hand-building two difficult switchbacks, which included intricate rock work to get through the turns. There was a bit of additional corridor cleared in preparation for construction of the next part of the trail, which will be built in an upcoming work party in a few weeks!

A group of kids and parents took part in brushing work along the EasyCLIMB trail within Cascade Locks during the work party as well. A great place for a mellow ride or loops with the kids, EasyCLIMB also offers great spots to splash in the river and have a picnic. It’s the perfect complement to the riding opportunities in the Cascade Locks region.

Group campsites were reserved at the Wyeth Campground in the Gorge, and many volunteers enjoyed the company and camping as much as the work party. Hamburgers were barbequed, beers were drank, frisbees were thrown, and low-key sunset bike rides were enjoyed. NWTA knows how to put the PARTY in work party!
