The Disciples of Dirt have had a busy fall, winter and spring working in partnership with the Willamalane Park and Recreation District to develop new mountain bike trails in Thurston Hills. More than one hundred forty volunteers participated in at least one of the many trailwork days that have brought new trail to the edge of Springfield.
DOD contributed 1,900 volunteer hours to this project and raised $27,000 which includes a whopping $20,000 grant from REI. Willamalane has been a great partner, allowing the Disciples to propose and build trails beyond those originally planned. We are extremely grateful to REI and our other sponsors for their support as well as all businesses and individuals who have contributed funds over the years towards the goal of more local singletrack. As the old saying goes, it takes a village to build a trail!
Missed the official open…. Guess it’s time to check out the final product! Very cool!
