Here’s a big thanks to the motivated crew that came out on August 12 to help work on the Surveyor’s Ridge re-route project! The team built some excellent trail!
You can now ride Surveyor’s Ridge (and we encourage you to do so) by parking at the 17/1720 junction and using the Super Connector to begin the ride (there is trailhead board on the 17 road just past the 1720 junction on your right). Or, for a longer ride, park at Knebal Campground and ride over to the Super Connector and all the way through Surveyor’s Ridge! Bike traffic will help “ride in” the trail.
We will post a map shortly outlining the new start and what is currently ready to ride. In the meantime, thanks to the crew that put in a solid day on Saturday!
Trail Work Day – Surveyor’s Ridge Reroute Project
Our first big trail work day of the summer is one week away – Sat July 22. We will working on the Surveyor’s reroute doing the initial trimming, clearing and rough-in work that will establish the new route. (The upper Surveyors route is being relocated to due to the pending large-scale Dalles Watershed pipeline project – and it’s a nice upgrade of the existing two-track start.)
Hardhats (bike helmets ok), long pants, work gloves and work boots REQUIRED!
Saturday, July 22, 2017 @ 9am – 2pm (plenty of time for a post-work-project ride)
Meet 9am @ Little John SnoPark on Highway 35
We’ll have coffee thanks to Dog River Coffee in HR and sign-in at the SnoPark and then move up to the work site as a group. Lunch will be provided by NY City Subs in Hood River.
