Trail School at Step Creek Trail – Tillamook State Forest – 1/20

January 20 @ 10:00 am 3:00 pm

NWTA’s Trail Sustainability Institute will be hosting Trail School at Tillamook State Forest on the Step Creek trail.

Trail School teaches the fundamental skills needed to maintain our trails. Participants will be learning safety techniques and tool identification/uses, as well as hands-on training of corridor clearing, drainage, and benchwork.

Northwest Trail Alliance’s Trail Sustainability Institute’s goal is to foster a culture of land stewardship within the mountain bike community. By training people to build sustainable trails, and by training people to lead crews of trail builders, we are raising the level of our own stewardship, and increasing our capacity to build and maintain quality trails.
