Indeed, the little town of Timber is one of those weigh stations. I have a friend all ready to set up a yurt camp if they ever convert the railway into a railtrail. And there is already a local bar and a really nice state park.
Right now, there is a lot of effort going on with the hwy30 trail. This too will also be a welcome addition to cycling ventures.
