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.

  12. Pleae put us ( my wife & I) down for camping, building & riding…Chuck Scarpelli, Carole Wiles.

  13. Hey Jim I’d love to join in and help. Put me down! I have minimal trail building experience but willing to put in the hard work. I have fond memories of this from two boundary trail trips. I might have a friend or two that can come too. I’ll direct them here.

  14. Hi Jim,

    Please, can you squeeze in two more? Stephanie LaMonica and Sam Elder –we are new members to the Alliance and my young son is chomping at the bit to go make some trail!

  15. Thanks, Jim! We are very excited to be a part. Thanks for keeping the kiddo and I together — as long as he wants to hang out with the mother (he’s 8 – so there’s still time), it’s a good thing! Should we bring any tools we have? Shovel? Loppers? I guess that’s really all we have! And, the saturday brew ha-ha — what do we bring for this?

  16. I’m in, camping Friday & Saturday nights & trail work. I’ll be in the group with Susan Fleenor.

  17. Hey Jeep,
    Please add me to the list. Gabrielle and I plan to camp Friday and Saturday. I am willing to crew lead if you need it.
    Lee Lemmon

  18. Jameson – Can you send me your son’s name? Also, is he capable of riding about a mile on trail? I can put you guys on the crew working right from the boat launch, but I’m trying to balance things and that group is already pretty large. If you think he can handle it, I will put you guys on the next crew out. – Jim

  19. Mike – Are your family members able to ride out to a starting point a mile or so from the boat launch? If not, let me know and I can have you work (no bikes) right from the launch. – Jim

  20. Scott – Are your family members able to ride a mile or two to get to the start-point? I am trying to keep the real young kids as close to the boat launch as possible so that they don’t have to ride. – Jim
