History of Mt Adams Backcountry

This was a huge project during the summer of 2018.  Over 3000 hours of volunteer labor that uncovered 52 miles of newly logged out and brushed out backcountry singletrack.  Our friends at Santa Cruz Bicycles come up at least once a year to attend a 4 day work party to help the cause and throw a shovel in the dirt.  They wrote about their experience attending this year’s work party along with some great photos that highlight the area.  Click here for the full details.
