      The Catamount Trail at Silver Falls State Park is now open, as of May 1st, 2016! We think you will enjoy the lovely big trees and rolling cross-country style. Come on out for a ride or hike and take a look at what all our hard work has produced! You can shuttle the trail by taking Lookout Mountain Road 3.0 miles from the 214 trailhead; then take a left at the locked gate and look for signs. Watch this video to get inspired!

      Thanks to another generous grant from our friends at REI we will be building again in the fall of 2016. Our plan for Catamount Phase II is to develop a beginner loop connecting the 214 trailhead to the west end of Phase I, complete with challenge features to keep you learning and growing. But wait, there’s more! We are very happy to report that SATA has been awarded a federal Recreational Trails Program grant to help us construct two more miles of trail at the east end, including a connection to your favorite trails at Shellburg Falls. The final product will nearly double the length of the current Catamount Trail! Final planning and construction to start in fall, 2016.
