Our mission is to create opportunities to enjoy cycling in nature, to foster a community of engaged volunteers, and to build a culture of land stewardship and environmental responsibility.
Bottom Line for Portland
People need to spend time enjoying nature and the outdoors. Portland is famous for being a cycling city, but it needs more off-road cycling options to get away from cars. The Northwest Trail Alliance organizes volunteers and provides resources to help local government keep pace with a growing demand for off-road cycling. In 2019, our community contributed over 25,000 volunteer hours in support of local outdoor recreation opportunities.

“The Northwest Trail Alliance (NWTA) has been a vital partner in the development and stewardship of Gateway Green over the last four years. They demonstrate their passion not only by enjoying riding in the park, but through their volunteer work and advocacy for riders of all ages, skill levels and abilities. Portland Parks & Recreation appreciates our partnership with NWTA, and the work they do to help Portlanders stay active and enjoying the outdoors.” —Portland Parks & Recreation landscape architect Ross Swanson
