Winter Rim Rehab #1 - Paisley, OR

In August of 2018 the Watson Creek Fire ignited and eventually burned several thousand acres—including one of our most treasured segments of the Fremont Tier: Bear Creek and a portion of Winter Rim. While it will take many years to resemble its former self, its regrowth is unique and beautiful in its own right. The OTTA , partnered with the Fremont-Winema National Forest, plans on rehabilitating the 16 most severely burned miles of the Fremont National Recreation Trail between Government Harvey Pass and Chewaucan Crossing.

Bunchgrass Build #2 - CANCELED

Connecting Oakridge and the Willamette Valley to Central Oregon, Bunchgrass Ridge has long been an important travel route for indigenous people, early settlers, and now people enjoying the forest on two wheels, two feet, or four hooves. The OTTA is rebuilding the final few miles of sub alpine singletrack connecting Bunchgrass Ridge to Fuji Mountain. Join us as we make history.

Willamette Tier Stewardship Campout 2019 - Bunchgrass

For our stewardship commitment in the Willamette Tier, we return to iconic Bunchgrass Ridge. Sunny meadows, giant stands of old growth forest, and lots of hard work await us there. But this year we will be partnering with the Backcountry Horsemen and venturing even deeper into this remote roadless area. Unlike our typical stewardship campouts, this event is far from your vehicle. We will ride and hike several miles while the Backcountry Horsemen transport our gear, tools, and water to our ridge top backcountry campsite.
