Your membership dollars have a massive impact on your riding opportunities and increasing access to trails. As one of the primary trail advocacy organizations in the region, NWTA is a community of people that loves being outside on trails. Membership allows access to the private trails of the Rocky Point trail system (including Trailforks maps), and provides countless opportunities to get out and build trails, ride trails, and meet other people who love it also.
Read our 2022 Annual Report to see how powerful your NWTA membership is! You helped make the following happen last year:
- After a 15-year process, NWTA broke ground on what will ultimately be 15 miles of trail near
Cascade Locks in the Columbia River Gorge.
- Eight new miles of trails were flagged in a logged area on the Northside of Rocky Point,
including 6 miles of paid machine-built trails.
- Three new trails opened at Klootchy Creek, including a progressive jump line. We worked with the
county to upgrade trailhead facilities adding a new restroom and expanded parking.
- A grant from the International Mountain Biking Association (IMBA) kick-started a massive project
to refresh the bike skills area at Gateway Green Park; a project that will be completed thanks to
additional support from Portland Parks & Recreation, TriMet, Stacy & Witbeck, and of course, our
- Fueled by a generous sponsorship from local developer project^, the inaugural season of NWTA’s
youth programming saw nearly 100 kids get on mountain bikes and progress their bike skills close to
home. Kids without bikes and helmets still had access to programming thanks to a fleet of bikes and
helmets donated by Trek Bikes.
- Our vision of everyone feeling welcome in the mountain biking community moved forward with BIPOC-
and women-led rides and clinics.
- After a BUSY summer season, the lower portion of Hide and Seek at Sandy Ridge was refurbished by a
paid trails contractor.
