  • W.T.F. at Portland Bike Show
    s growing collaboration between the various regional groups who are working to build trails near where they live Our talking points for our two active projects can be summed up as follows Project 1 lead by Ryan McLane Out in Tillamook State Forest near Idiot Creek area of Larch Mountain we have done extensive trail planning over past 5 years for a fully shuttlable DH specific trail network 2 000 feet of elevation descent 7 miles of initial trail with 4 5 miles of contiguous DH trail and a sessionable skill area located 1 mile up from lower parking area This area we have focused on is part of zone designated for mountain biking as part of an earlier recreation plan developed by ODF with public input Currently ODF is unable to move forward with further planning of this area due to lack of available resources simply isn t available bandwidth for remaining project managers to take this on This project has an on hold status and will be reviewed again in 2011 by ODF In the meantime W T F will have one final meeting with district representatives to outline our plan and why we believe this is a cost neutral project to them meaning all volunteer labor and opportunity to recoup admin expenses thru parking permit fees After that we will turn over the project for ongoing support by IMBA and Northwest Trail Alliance representatives We do not expect to devote W T F resources to this project until it enters the build phase because we are trail builders doing the design development and ongoing maintenance but we will collaborate with other organizations who do have resources to devote to education and advocacy efforts in support of mountain biking recreation opportunities and bike tourism Slideshow about Tillamook State Forest DH project Project 2 lead by Joe Rykowski Ryan McLane At Stub Stewart State Park we are working with the Oregon Parks Recreation Department to plan a freeride skill area as part of the mountain biking specific area within the park OPRD has recently formed an internal project team lead by region manager which is focused on development of Stub mountain biking specific trail area What has been proposed under new draft policy for engaging proponent mountain biking groups is a medium sized freeride skill area with beginner intermediate and advanced trails which feed into a small session area with variety of skill features Initially the focus will be on building plain singletrack trail and then adding all mountain style features to enhance available opportunity Based on response from riding community and general public over next year for these trail options available within park then the next step would be to provide more advanced features by enhancing the exiting beginner all mountain trail to include freeride elements and beginning work on intermediate freeride trail We agreed with OPRD management in the desire to do this right the first time and to take a slower approach to development of trail
