Work Party Rescheduled To March 25th at Stubs Stewart

Now open to roll over

Bridge #2 is complete and ready for your tires. Help us March 11th get Bridge #1 dialed.

This will mark the completion of a two-year project building 3 bridges at Stub Stewart.

On March 25th we will be putting a “bow on it.”

But first, we need to do a little trail work. Then we can cut a ribbon and celebrate.

Feb 18th- we need help building the ramps onto the two new bridges.

Bridge #1 game-plan, complete this task and we can move onto other projects in the area!

Scope of work:
Volunteers will be hauling rock and finishing the last of the bridge ramps and doing a couple trail improvement projects in the area.
**See video!

Ditch Witch with bucket operations. Moving rock.

NWTA Crew Leader Daniel K working the Ditch Witch with bucket to help move the rock needed at the job site.

Goal: 30 volunteers

Due space limitations of the project site we will need to limit the number of volunteers.
So please SIGN UP to reserve your place at this momentous event.

Gathering of the troops Bridge 2 crew. A separate crew dispatched from the other side to Bridge 1.

Meet at LL Stub Stewart, Hill Top Day Use Area at 8:45 to sign-in.

At 9 am we ride our bikes to the project site deep in the MTB Area where tools and rock will be waiting.
We will work until 1:30 and then start the celebration.

Bonus for volunteering – hot chili & cornbread, HUB beer, and a swag raffle.

Bring your mountain bike (or not) and be prepared to ride across the finished bridges.

Note – bring proper ride gear cuz it’d be for video and photos taken during the celebration.
Also, we do need some volunteers to plan on carpooling to staging location and hiking the wheelbarrows to work site (about 3/4 mile hike). So if not up to work and then ride (consider your fitness level), we do have an easier option – ‘course it does involve pushing a wheelbarrow… so… Either way, your work out will be complete!

If your curious about the Northwest Trail Alliance you can visit the website HERE. They post group rides and work parties throughout the year including the 'camp out' events where you just ride all weekend exploring new areas with experienced riders.

Hope to see you March 11th!

 Stunning work as ever. One of these days I'll make it out there (and I'll be sure to bring a shovel) Salute
