Trail Sister’s Dig Series: Trail Fundamentals – 1/8

January 8, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

Join us at Rocky Point for the first installment of the NW Trail Sister’s Dig Series – Trail Fundamentals, sponsored by Cyclepath PDX!


DIG SEASON IS HERE! Are you ready to get dirty?

We are excited to announce the Trail Sisters Dig Series, a set of dig days dedicated to skills and confidence building. We have four dig days scheduled at multiple locations where we will cover the ins-and-outs of trail building in a fun and supportive environment.

Join us at Rocky Point for the first installment of the Dig Series – Trail Fundamentals. This first event will focus on tool identification and use, corridor clearing, drainage mitigation, and the overall nuts and bolts of trail maintenance. Cyclepath PDX will be sponsoring the event, providing post-dig food, drinks, and (weather permitting) shuttles!

We welcome all women and non-binary folks interested in trail building to join us! No prior digging experience is necessary.

Waiver: Once registered, please sign the waiver HERE.

What to bring:

  • Warm clothing & extra layers: We will be outside in the cold, dress warm and bring extra layers.
  • Rain jacket (and pants if you have them): It’s January in the PNW, odds are high it’ll rain and that doesn’t stop us from digging!
  • Gloves (waterproof are best): It wouldn’t hurt to bring an extra pair, too. Cold hands suck!
  • Sturdy shoes
  • Helmet or hard hat (required)
  • Eye protection
  • Water
  • Snacks & lunch
  • Bike & bike gear for post-dig riding

TOOLS WILL BE PROVIDED. You are not required to bring any tools, but if you have your own folding saw, loppers, rake, shovel, or hoe, feel free to bring it.

In accordance with our agreement with Weyerhaeuser, the land manager of Rocky Point, those who enter the property must be a NWTA member in good standing and have signed the Rocky Point Waiver. Join NWTA and become one of nearly 6,000 mountain bikers stewarding trails together in NW Oregon and SW Washington. If the cost of membership creates a financial hardship, please reach out to us, we can help with that barrier.

These events are very popular and sell out quickly. If you are unable to attend for any reason, please cancel your registration with AT LEAST 24 hours notice so others on the waitlist have an opportunity to come.
