Wilson River Trail
Organization: Oregon Department of Forestry
Status: Project complete
Type: Mountain bike project
Address: Wilson River Trail, Tillamook State Forest, OR
The Oregon Department of Forestry used a $7,000 grant to help construct a new, 3.5-mile span of the Wilson River Trail in Tillamook State Forest. The new trail extends the Wilson River Trail to 24.5 miles and provides Portland's mountain bike community with more options for long singletrack rides. Bikes Belong's grant, along with funding from Cycle Oregon and Oregon Equestrian Trails, helped match a Recreational Trails Program grant for the project. The Portland United Mountain Pedalers (PUMP) also supported the project, and they've adopted and maintained an existing portion of the Wilson River Trail.
