Screenshot 2014-08-28 10.58.29
What: Let’s give back to the trails we love to use and are part of what makes Central Oregon a great place to call home.

When: Mark your calendar for Saturday, November 4th when COTA will be leading the Trail Love Work Party Event – Fall Edition

All COTA members, mountain bikers, trail runners and everyone else welcome at this large dig party. The plan is to build out the new connector single-track from the bottom of Pine Drops to the Phil’s/300 junction, as well as relocating a section of COD near the Welcome Center to a more burly, black diamond. (YIKES!) There are 100 or more expected for this work day so plan to meet some new friends and possible future Bella members! Plan to work 3+ hours and reconvene for lunch and beer. Food and beverage are free to all the trail work volunteers.

Where: TBA

If you’ve never done a COTA work event, it is a fun time, not to mention great camaraderie.

For more information: Please contact Nancy Whitlatch at with questions.

Please bring the following PPE (personal protection equipment):

  • good footwear (boots or sturdy shoes)
  • long pants
  • hydration
  • snacks.
  • If you have them, bring glasses or goggles to protect eyes and work gloves.
  • Be sure to bring appropriate layers to accommodate whatever the weather may be.
  • COTA will provide tools, gloves, goggles, and helmets. We will work for 3 hours and then maybe go to a local watering hole for snacks and a beverage of your choice.

Due to COTA’s insurance requirements and the inherent dangers of trail work, we must implement the following policy regarding children at work events:

For anyone 14 years of age or younger, we require one parent, guardian, or responsible adult for supervision of every four kids attending any COTA trail work events.
All minors under the age of 18 must have a parent or guardian available to sign our waiver.
