HERITAGE TRAILS PARK PROJECT
Washington County Parks in partnership with Metro Mountain Bikers, Milwaukee MTB Trail Advocates, Metro are designing and constructing mountain bike trails at Heritage Trails County Park in Slinger, WI. The plan is to build 6-8 miles of premier Kettle Moraine flow style mountain bike trails will be designed and constructed.
“Mountain biking has been increasing in popularity and demand, all of the past County Park surveys and Wisconsin DNR southeastern Wisconsin recreation surveys have confirmed this public demand for more opportunities in our area,” said Parks & Trails Manager Eric Hyde. “We’re truly honored and excited for this opportunity to partner with a well-established organization like Metro MTB that has the resources and track record to take on a project like this.”
“Metro could not be more excited for the opportunity to partner with Washington County Parks. Mountain Biking Recreation is quickly growing across the nation and so many Washington County and Southeast Wisconsin residents are seeking trails and new recreation experiences. Washington County was quick to recognize the need for increased recreation and approached Metro two years ago to begin exploring the build out of trail in Heritage Trails County Park. Here we are today breaking ground and creating something that will really make a statement for all of Wisconsin" said now former Metro MTB President, James Mattox. "These trails are going to be some of the best in the entire state. We will have a little bit of everything for riders of all abilities and skill levels. Deploying the newest trail building techniques and features, we will have single track, flow trail with A and B lines, as well as more progressive Black Diamond areas built into the park with jumps, drops, and features that will challenge even the best of riders. This trail system will draw riders from at least three states away to see what has been built in Washington County! To say we are excited would be an understatement."
