I live in Beaverton, Oregon and I am looking for some good trail systems or places to ride that are closer to my neck of the woods? Most quality trails I’ve ridden (ex. Sandy ridge, post canyon, Stubb Stewart) are a solid 45+ minute drive from my house and realistically it’s hard to get out because of a long work week schedule (12 hours/day, 5 days a week).

Anyone one know of quality riding spots close by?

Never been riding down there, but I have heard Portland is the most aggressively anti-cycling city in the union. People complain about this all the time, there are no trails because it is basically illegal. So much for progressivism, smh.

Not anti-cycling, anti-MTB.

Rocky Point might be an option, but you'll need to be a NWTA member. Small price to pay for the trails that will be built there.

That looks really interesting. It’s actually the first I’ve heard about them for the most part. I might have heard about NWTA in a passing conversation or seen where they have done trail work but I didn’t know that had member exclusive trails.

Have you ridden there or know what skill level most of their trails are?

Black Rock was great saturday. Not much mud. We avoided the bare wooden structures but the ones with chicken wire were fine. Great day of riding. I usually have room for more in my truck.

What does it actually cost to ride at the Rocky Point trails? I have been told a few times that you must be a member. On Trailforks I clicked the donate and sent $50 but now I see that does not qualify. On the NWTA? Website I saw all kinds of different dollar amounts. I think it said $230? Is that for a year?

Hey I’d love to be out building trails and I appreciate the good trails I get to ride.
