Motorized Use Officially Back OPEN

Columbia Gorge Off Road Association News and Work Party Planned For Oct 2nd. This group gets huge accolades for re-routing the shuttle drop off point off Binns Hill Rd to '2 Chairs 2' and '3 Blind Mice'. Instead of bombing down 'The Tobaggen Chute' all users now have a nice meandering trail that is very sustainable and designed for MTB (even though its a connector for the motorized crowd) if you haven't ridden lately. No fears, the dirt is incrediable and very nice right now. 

Interested in participating in a work party and get some good 'Ju-Ju' while on your bike. Here's the details.

The Columbia Gorge Off-Road Association and the Hood River County Forestry Department are having a trail work party at Hood River, Oregon. 

CGORA Trail Work Party 
Trail #191L 
Northwest Area, Hood River County Trail System 
Hood River, Oregon 
Saturday October 2, 2010 
9:00am - 1:00pm Work Party 

Thanks to everyone that helped during the last CGORA Work Party on Trail #191L!  We should be able to finish the last half of this Loop during this Work Party. This is a motorcycle and quad loop trail near Kingsley Reservoir.  We will be removing rocks and brush from the trail and improving the tread.  Bring water, lunch, safety glasses, and work gloves. We will be providing McLeods, Pulaskis, Rakes, and Loppers etc. We will walk into the work area. All volunteer hours are used to satisfy in-kind grant requirements. You can bring your bike and ride after the Work Party.  The trails will open on Monday, September 20.

Directions to the Trail Work Party Area: 

From I-84, exit at Hood River exit (exit 62), go south (east) on Cascade/Oak St., and immediately make the next right turn (west) on Country Club Rd. Take Country Club Rd to Barrett Dr and turn right (west), staying on Country Club Rd past Hood River Golf to Oak Grove. Turn right (west) at the Old Oak Grove Store and take Binns Hill Rd up the hill to Kingsley Rd.  Turn left (south) on Kingsley Rd and drive 5.9 miles to the Kingsley Reservoir Staging Area. We will walk into Trail 191L. Meet at 9:00 am sharp!
