Ever been on the Whiskey Run Mountain Biking Trail? The trail is exciting and is attracting mountain bikers young and old. This project attracts visitors from more than just the south coast area, but from across the nation.
Wild Rivers Coast Alliance is a South Coast Development Council (SCDC) member that exemplifies what the SCDC is all about. The members of SCDC are dedicated to helping create responsible growth along the South Coast. Much of what is accomplished is done by individual members working in conjunction with those who bring them good ideas on how to attract more visitors, how to grow and support the existing businesses on the South Coast and how we can bring new businesses and jobs to the area.
This is exactly what Wild Rivers Coast Alliance did! A great idea was brought to them and they worked in conjunction with and helped support those that made the trail happen. To take a quote from The World Newspaper "This project just proves how much we can do when we work together," said Board of Commissioners Chairman Melissa Cribbins. "This partnership combined the efforts of Coos County, Wild Rivers Coast Alliance, Jon-Paul Bowles, Chris Barnhart of Sentieros Consulting, Eddie Kessler of Ptarmigan Trails, Travel Oregon and its regional steering committees, and the efforts of the Wild River Coast Mountain Biking Club."
The result is that we are richer here on the South Coast. We have 10 miles of fantastic single-track mountain bike trails with 10 more miles soon to come.
Thank you Wild Rivers Coast Alliance for being a part of the growth and development of the South Coast and for the extraordinary example of what the SCDC is all about.
