Tool Cache & Club Trailer = We Did It!
The Club was successful in its request for funding from the Federal Recreational Trails Program (RTP) for trail tools and a trailer for storage and transport to our projects. The total project cost is $13,136 with $3010 of that total being donated by the club and local businesses through discounted equipment purchases.
Big thanks to C&M Equipment in Gold Beach, Trailers Plus in Medford, and Ptarmigan Ptrails in Port Orford.
Lower Rogue River Trail – Restoration Project = We Did It!
Over the past couple years the club has been engaged with the US Forest Service on improving opportunities for mountain biking on public lands.
This led the Forest Service to pursue funding through the Federal Recreational Trails Program for the heavy restoration efforts needed to bring the Lower Rogue River Trail back into shape for travel by multiple user groups. The competitive process was successful in bringing $143,000 to the rehab effort.
WRCMBA members and volunteers committed over 550 hours to help complete the project. We are really excited for this effort from all our volunteers and local community members from Gold Beach to Agness! Info on the LRRT can be found on TrailForks. Go out and enjoy this historic backcountry river trail, email the club if you have any logistical questions.
