Join us on Saturday, June 11th, from 9 am – 5 pm for the long-awaited return of LapQuest at LL Stub Stewart Trail System.
LapQuest is a grassroots group ride race/non-race social event.
Come to race or just do a couple of laps at your speed. It is all the same.
This is a fun social event to celebrate what NWTA volunteers have accomplished at LL Stub Stewart over the last two years.
Williams Creek Trail
Williams Creek Trail has officially REOPENED.
On May 13th, 17 volunteers converged at L.L. Stub Stewart State Park to finish a 6-month trail project. The goal for this large project was to address drainage issues and make the trail rideable year-round. The challenge is that the Williams Creek area is wet, and it is a multi-user trail with bikes and horses. Solution: We hauled in 8 dump truck loads of rock and improved drainage to improve the trail’s durability.
This latest trail project (work day) was a partnership between NWTA and volunteers from Huron Consulting. Special thanks go to Event Leader: Joe Rykowski and Crew Leader: Milt Scholl
In celebration of the REOPENING of the Williams Creek Trail, Ranger Stephanie arrived with cupcakes and a banner celebrating the Oregon State Park’s 100-year centennial. It is worth noting that NWTA has maintained a strong partnership with the Rangers at Stub Stewart due to our consistent volunteer efforts. And most importantly, our commitment to completing the projects that we start. As a unified volunteer group, we have made ‘Stub‘ a great place to ride.
Note: If your company wants to schedule an employee service day project at Stub Stewart, let me know. Ted Dodd ([email protected]).
