Mt St Helens Coldwater Lake work event and campout

Sat, 06/07/2014 - 9:00am - 2:00pm

To celebrate National Trails Day, we will be out in force at Coldwater Lake on the north side of Mount St. Helens on Saturday, June 7th.

Last year’s work party drew only 75 volunteers. We are aiming for 100 this time, so get your name on the list and start browbeating your friends. NO DOGS AT THIS EVENT.

To say the project is a large one is a sizable understatement. The scope includes work on a 12-mile loop comprised of the 211, 230, and 230A. Last year, we also hit about a mile of the 230A from the back of Coldwater Lake toward St. Helens Lake. Depending on the number of volunteers and the snow conditions, we are hoping to do more in this area.

Last year’s epic end-of-the-day party will be hard to beat, but we will do our best.

HelensFest - SHIFT

Fri, 08/22/2014 - 8:00am - Sun, 08/24/2014 - 5:00pm

The Saint Helen's International Festival of Trails (SHIFT), formerly Helens Fest, is August 22-24th and promises to be a great time.The focus of the event is to share the amazing trails on the mountain and our love for trail building with a large group of people.  We also want to do it free for all participants.  There will be pork, beer, bike shops and maybe a vendor or two.  If you know anyone who might be interested in being a sponsor, let us know as we have a letter going out to potential sponsors this week. 

The event will be located at Marble Mountain snow park just north of Cougar, Wa.

Friday and Sunday are ride days while Saturday is for building and partying and quite possibly some more riding.
