Sandy Ridge Trail Maintenance Day this Saturday, November 9th

Kicking off the Sandy Ridge Trail System seasonal maintenance is work on the entrance and beginning section of Two Turntables and a Microwave (TTM). IMBA is scheduled to be there with an excavator and we're looking to make quick work of a makeover of TTM. Join us as we continue to hone the amazing trail system that is Sandy Ridge.

Saturday, 10am-2pm, meet at Sandy Ridge parking lot.

Details and sign-up on the Calendar event posting.

See you in the woods!

Lost and Found Gear- Sandy Ridge Trail System

We all likely have items of gear fall off our bikes or bags or otherwise get left behind at trails. I always hate to see someone else's gear left behind without knowing how to reunite them. If possible, could we add an area of the trails forum to help people and gear get back together?

CANCELED - Sandy Ridge Trail Maintenance and Build Day: 12/2013

12/11/2013: Due to the unseasonably cold weather, the ground is frozen solid and working this Saturday would be extremely difficult for the hand work that we have planned.  Given these circumstances, and after conferring with the BLM and IMBA who would be helping at this event, we've decided to cancel the December work day (12/14)

We'll likely resume our efforts in March/April, unless the tide swings and it becomes unseasonably warm sooner than that.  Keep your eye on the NWTA calendar and at Sandy Ridge for more information.

Looking forward to seeing you on the trails!

Shuttle Day Carpooling

So you want to join us at Sandy Ridge on the 22nd for the Crazy fun time that's going to be but you don't have a way to get there. You need to be shuttled to the shuttle? We can't bring you there, because we've thrown all our efforts into planning and funding this awesome opportunity, but we can provide a place for you to talk to other people about it. Post your situation here! Got a vehicle and want to take some other people with you? Cool! 

Good luck everyone! I'll see you soon!

Sandy Ridge - Trail building day with PDW - Eastside Flow

2013.05.11 - Sandy Ridge

Today was a great day to be in the woods.  Close to 50 great volunteers, along with our partners the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the International Mountain Bicycling Association (IMBA) worked on the newest trail at Sandy Ridge Trail System, a trail that starts up top, descends down the east side of Homestead Rd and will end at the Hide & Seek cutoff on Homestead Rd.

Sandy Ridge traffic on road this summer M-F 6a-4p - Use caution

*UPDATE 2013.07.21* - As of the week of 7/17, the timber harvest hauling should be complete.  Thanks everyone for helping make this a relatively minor interruption to the riding at SRTS.  As always, please be aware of government agency and other traffic on this road, as it is routinely used for BLM, Portland Water Bureau, PGE, etc., access.


If you ride Sandy Ridge during the day, weekdays, please note the following-- there will be truck traffic this summer, so use caution and stay to the right as you ride up.


  • Sandy Ridge is NOT being harvested-- other private land near Sandy Ridge is being logged

  • USFS has granted use of Homestead Rd/USFS 14 for the timber operation hauling

  • Trucks will be on road M-F (non-holiday weekdays) appx 6a-4p

  • Permit granted through October but hopefully it will be done mid-summer

From the BLM: "USER NOTICE:  Timber harvest on private lands in the vicinity of Sandy Ridge will begin on May 6th.  Homestead Road/USFS 14 will be actively used for timber haul during the summer of 2013.  Active hauling (up to 20 loads per day) will take place on non-holiday weekdays, primarily between the hours of 6 am and 4 pm daily.  Users should consider using the system outside of the affected hours.  Those visiting  during the week should exercise extreme caution and utilize the designated bike lane."
