An organization hit the reset button on a park damaged by the 2020 derecho, and it’s led to a new trail opening in Linn County.

The Linn Area Mountain Bike Association partnered with Backyard Trails to build a mountain bike jump trail through Wanatee Park. There may not be any mountains for these bikers, but that hasn’t stopped them from creating trails with obstacles to create the same effect.

This one is no different and showcases a new feature - a wall ride - which was complete, using wood from trees in the park that were damaged in the derecho. Member donations funded the rest of the project, costing just under $4,000.
