Off-Road Cycling

We encourage mountain biking in a responsible manner.   Low impact cycling techniques emphasize courtesy towards all trail users and respect for the land.

IMBA (International Mountain Biking Association) Trail Rules:

  1. Ride only on open trails.
  2. Leave no trace.
  3. Always control your bike.
  4. Always yield to other trail users.
  5. Never spook animals.
  6. Plan ahead and be prepared.

Off Road Riding Requires Favorable Trail Conditions:  Please Leave No Trace.  If your tread is leaving an impression, it is too wet!  Please consider other options when the trails are wet and muddy.  It's no fun cleaning a muddy bike or fixing a damaged trail.

We recommend that you do most of your conditioning on the roads or paved trails to prevent damaging trails when conditions are not favorable.  Consider winter riding in the morning to prevent riding on thawing or muddy trails.
