SORA gets $1.1 million grant for Nordic Center and Gateway Trail System

Below is a link to the press release that announces SORA’s (Siskiyou Outdoor Recreation Alliance’s) receipt of a $1.1 mil grant to dramatically increase the facilities at the Nordic Center and to build 5 miles of new trail in the Gateway Trail System. While this is an amazing benefit for all the back-country skiers and snowshoers, it also means that MSTA now has an additional five miles of trail construction funded.

The press release also shows the map of planned trails and how they fit together. Note that SORA’s grant will fund the key connector trails currently identified as BMZ-8, 9, 13, and 14 (seen in orange on the map, with arrows and labels). MSTA will soon be posting updates on other trails recently constructed in the system and those will be available on the Gateway Trail website,

This is a big deal.
