Mt. Emily Mountain Bike Trails
This past Sunday, Oct. 9, Professor Brian Sather, co-author of Mountain Biking La Grande Oregon and developer of the LaGrandeRide.com website, led an orientation mountain bike ride on the trails of the Mt. Emily Recreation Area (MERA) located just minutes north of downtown La Grande. Professor Sather said of the ride "We covered all of the major trails. They are in great condition from the rain and students should take advantage of the trail system that few colleges have such close access to!"
If you're interested in checking out the local mountain bike trails, stop by the Outdoor Program (Hoke 102) and talk with our staff or check out a guide book.
