Wilder Trail Permits At Bike Newport

wilder1 225x300 Wilder Trail Permits At Bike NewportFor the past several years we’ve been issuing Wilder Trail Permits to grant access to our nature trails, exclusively through our Wilder Newport sales office. However, now that nearly every lot and home has been sold (with the exception of these properties) the sales office is open to all Realtors and their clients by means of a standard Realtor lockbox, and to buyers touring on their own by appointment. Walking maps and brochures are available outside the sales office.

Recently Bike Newport (150 NW 6th), whose staff sends a lot of bicyclists our way, has taken over as the exclusive issuer of hiking and biking permits for use of the privately-owned timber land around Wilder. Bike Newport has been a bike retailer in Newport for nine years and their professionally trained staff can provide tips about using the  land, including how to do so safely and responsibly. Bike Newport is also a backer of the Coast Hills Classic, a race held in May that uses the surrounding timber properties.

Encouraging people to venture out to enjoy our bountiful natural area is important to us so don’t hesitate in reaching out to Bike Newport to get a permit.

Just a reminder – you don’t need a permit to access the City or County’s public lands, which include the Wilder Twin Park playground, the trail through Oregon Coast Community College and Mike Miller Park via the lower Wilder Twin Park, the dog park or the disc golf course.

And when our new coffee shop opens, you won’t need a permit there either.

 

2014 Coast Hills Classic Mountain Bike Race in Newport

Coast Hills Classic Mountain Bike Race in Newport brings XC racing back to the Oregon Coast. The course is designed with gorgeous ocean views, sweeping river views, meadows, down hills, a single track, steep climbs, and what’s sure to be a wet & muddy course.
The series is made up of 10 races starting on April 6th and ending June 29th 2014. The Coast Hills Classic is race #3 in the series. Each race will be raffling off a Jamis Bike Frame that is worth $900.

The race kicks off right here at Wilder.

Bike Newport has teamed up with the City of Newport Parks & Recreation Department and has huge support from the local paper, the Newport News Times to put on this race. All proceeds from the event will go towards the Newport Recreation Center’s Youth Sports Program scholarship fund. The proceeds will allow children from economically disadvantaged homes the opportunity to participate in sports programs offered through the Parks & Recreation Department.
