Coldwater Is a Go!

The party at Coldwater Lake has been approved by the U.S. Forest Service the weekend of June 2-4.

This event will feature ride opportunities on Friday and Sunday, a full-on build on Saturday, a party on Saturday night, and a rare chance to camp on the north side of the mountain.

If you haven’t been to Coldwater, it’s unbelievably beautiful. We have been granted a one-of-a-kind exemption to camp right near the lake. Bring the family and make it a weekend.

If the snow is off, we will be cleaning the 211 trail on the north side of the lake and a portion of the 230A on the south side.

  1. I have a previous commitment on Friday June 02, but I could do the work party on Saturday and ride on Sunday.

  2. Brian Butler will be there for sure. Please place me on the camp list for Fri & Sat nights. let me know what implements of destruction to bring

  3. In.

    Just let me know tools to bring – I’ve got saw, McLeod, shovel, hands, etc. Jeep – I’m also a USFS-certified B-level sawyer, per the Willamette Ranger district a couple weeks ago. I should have card in hand by mid-May, but they can also check with Kevin Rowell in that district if they need proof prior to that. No idea if there will be cutting to be done, but I can actually cut on USFS land legally.

    I can also bring a lot of firewood if that’s permitted. I’ve got a cord and half that needs burning before it gets too old.

  4. Jeep, my wife and are planning to bring the kids. So 5 total for the Saturday work party and camping and Sunday ride.
    We’ll come out Saturday am.

    Looking forward to it.



  5. I’ve never ridden on this side. Would be great to hang out with you all again! Count me in.

  6. The Fitch Family will be there. Clint, Lizzy, Lethon and Isaac. Will arrive Friday, late afternoon, sometime after the boys get out of school.

  7. We want to go! Helped at Stubb Stewart. Scott Philbrook and family (4) total (15 and 12 yo)

  8. Glad you can make it, Scott. Can you send me first and last names for everyone in your crew. I will make sure you are assigned to the same section. – Jim

  9. Myself and my family would like to participate. Mike, Arleen and Annelise Norkitis
    Will arrive Friday afternoon and camp the weekend.

  10. Add Evil Steve to the Coldwater list-o-volunteers too. Also, somewhere, somehow my name got dropped off the mail list. Could ya put me back on, please?

  11. Good to hear from you, Steve. I had an email hack last year and I’m still putting my email list back together. If you don’t get messages Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, let me know. Also, put the 5K (May 13th) on your schedule. Time to return to Growlers for some pain.
