The Disciples of Dirt Mountain Bike Club (DOD) boasts members from all over the Pacific Northwest and beyond, but we focus our efforts within Oregon’s Southern Willamette Valley, where the club was founded and the majority of our membership live and ride. Club members share a high level of passion for mountain biking and the DOD is well known within the cycling world for being stewards of our local trails and champions for improved trail access for cyclists.

Middle Fork Reroute Update

The missing link of the Middle Fork Trail is about to be completed! Last spring volunteers from DOD, Transcascadia, GOATS and ATCA built a reroute around the Coal Creek crossing on the MFT as part of a floodplain restoration project. Now construction of the rest of the trail going over Coal Butte has begun. Total length of the trail will be increased to around 32 miles!

Here is an update from the Willamette Watershed Council:

We are so excited to announce that we received a grant from Travel Oregon to complete construction of the new Coal Creek section of the #middleforktrail!

With our partners at the U.S. Forest Service – Willamette National Forest Middle Fork Ranger District, we restored the Coal Creek floodplain this summer and are now moving the Middle Fork Trail out of the floodplain and adding distance to it. Our great contractors at Dirt Mechanics started work last week on the exciting new section. Stay tuned for updates!

This trail project is also possible thanks to generous funding from National Forest FoundationU.S. Forest Service and OWEB.

High Cascades Forest Volunteers Fall Training Event.

Come on out and hone your skills or learn new ones. Are you a new chainsaw or cross cut sawyer or would you like more mentoring? Would you like to learn how to manage a saw? Want to learn about power brushing? Crib wall construction? Are you a Forest Service volunteer needing CPR or first aid? If so, come join us.

Any Willamette National Forest group affiliated or new volunteer is welcome. Many groups across the forest will be involved, including GOATS, Scorpions, and Salamanders. Radio training will be offered as well, and there is one spot still available for a crosscut sharpening workshop.

Space is limited so as to allow small numbers for saw mentoring. Preference will be shown to new sawyers. No saw certifications will be offered during this training.

Coffee and danishes will be available at registration, which starts at 8 am. Make your own lunch fixings will also be available prior to 8:30 am departure for trail crews. At the end of the day, we welcome you back to the GOATS shop for a potluck and a chance to share drinks and camaraderie with fellow volunteers across the forest.
October 19th. 8-5pm
GOATS World Headquarters 76248 Industrial Parkway. Oakridge, OR.
