Come adventure in the Tillamook Forest! We've partnered with Cycle Oregon to bring you their inaugural Gravel Ride - October 5th-7th. The route will explore the areas surrounding the future Salmonberry Trail and we'll be hosting site tours throughout the weekend for curious riders. With funds raised at these incredible rides @cycleoregon supports communities all across Oregon. These Community and Signature Grants - like the one awarded to @thesalmonberrytrail - can turn dreams into reality. Come Ride!
Running nearby the future Salmonberry Trail is Highway 6 which was just officially designated as Oregon's Trees to Sea Scenic Byway! Jack Mulder of Tillamook Creamery, and board member of the Tillamook Forest Heritage Trust, framed this historical recognition aptly: "If we went back in time and told those who faced the ashes of the Tillamook Burn that Hwy 6 would someday be the Trees to Sea Scenic Byway, do you think they would believe us?" A good reminder of the what the combined power of time, dedicated communities, and the forest can do.
