Based in Battleground and Vancouver, Cold Creek Mountain Bikers has about 250 members who help care for trails in Yacolt Burn State Forest. Continuing a long history of partnering with DNR, this Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance chapter just finished marking a future connector trail from the new lower Yacolt Burn trailhead and parking area to the Thrillium trail exit.

The completed trail, scheduled for construction in early 2016, will allow riders to skip forest roads in favor of added single track. Started in 2006, the group has been integral to opening the Thrillium trail and trailheads specifically for mountain bike access.

They  continue to coordinate monthly work parties to care for these and other trails in Yacolt Burn State Forest.

The Cold Creek Mountain Bikers are one of a number of groups DNR is partnering with on its current plan to create trail connections in the Yacolt Burn State Forest. The plan calls for 17-miles of additional hiking, horseback riding, and mountain biking trail segments and loops.
