May 3rd Party: Lower Newton Road!
Due to our trail conditioning success on FL5, we are going to shift our efforts to the Lower section of Newton Road for the May 3rd Trail Party (this Saturday).

Yippie! It's time for another Forest Park Trail Maintenance Party. Our trail work parties are building community, gaining in popularity, and definitely getting our Mountain Biking Community noticed in a big way! We are currently the only Forest Park user group showing up in consistent large numbers and its being noticed -- Let's keep that wheel spinning, folks!

Our efforts on FL5 have turned it into the best conditioned section in the park. This provides us the opportunity to give some mountain biker love to another fantastic section of often over looked singletrack: (Lower) Newton Road!
Yes. We will be venturing further into the park to do some maintenance, enhancements, and re-routes! Many of you who either worked on FL5 or have ridden it since November when PUMP began our regular maintenance efforts have noticed the changes we've made on that section: addition of serpentines, culverts, drainage improvements, etc. which result in an enhanced experience on the trail. We will be doing similar projects on the Newton Road section.
For those of you who've not ventured this far into the park, you will be introduced to what is often described as the best section of downhill singletrack in the park. Our wonderful Trail and Restoration Manager from the Forest Park Conservancy (FKA: Friends of Forest Park), Jeff Hough, will be sharing tips on how to incorporate this fun section into your Forest Park Rides during his orientation briefing after sign-in.
Please RSVP so we can plan the additional work and have enough equipment (and pastries) on hand for everyone!
Event: Newton Road Trail (Build) Party
Date: Saturday, May 3rd, 2008
Time: 9:00 am - 1:00 PM
Road Parking near Rail Road Tracks on NW Marina Way off Hwy 30
Please click Map: http://tinyurl.com/479e95
Directions: From Portland drive out Highway 30 and make a right on NW Marina Way. *Marina Way is on the North side of the St John's Bridge* Cross rail road tracks and park where ever you are able on the shoulder. Jeff Hough's Forest Park Conservancy vehicle will be in the pole position and will be the meet point.
Newton Road is directly across Hwy 30 from the meet point (though not marked on the map), but has no parking area. For that reason, we will be parking on NW Marina and walking over to Newton after sign in and orientation.
* RSVP so we can plan work to be done and have enough tools on hand for everyone (and pastries!)
