The non-profit Northwest Trail Alliance has wrapped up work on their major renovation to the bike park in Eichler Park near downtown Beaverton (13710 SW Farmington Road).

The new design features three different “jump lines” suitable for all skill levels as well as a small pump track where riders flow through a series of whoops and berms to build momentum. The park was specifically designed for both 20-inch (kids/BMX) and 26-inch (MTB) wheeled bikes.

A few yards further down he pointed out a tree stump a few feet from the edge of the path. It used to be a spikey Hawthorne tree, he said, and “I’m not a fan of spikey trees, especially when they grow too closely to the path.”[Read more…]
