Madison Bicycle Adventure Trail Network

Improving connectivity and enhancing access to parks and open spaces is a recommended strategy identified through research and data analysis as part of the 2018-2023 Park and Open Space Plan. A potential adventure bike trail network is a way to connect multiple smaller trail segments in green spaces such as parks, greenways, and stormwater parcels throughout the city. The natural surface trails, singletrack trails, and bike optimized park facilities are some of the possibilities with the Madison Bicycle Adventure Trail system. Learn more>>
