Heritage Trails Park Project Is a Go!
Here's a link to the press release.
Washington County Parks Announces Partnership with Metro Mountain Bikers, Milwaukee MTB Trail Advocates, Metro will design and construct mountain bike trails at Heritage Trails County Park in Slinger, WI starting this month.
The Washington County Board of Supervisors approved a new non-profit-public partnership with Metro Mountain Bikers, a Greater Milwaukee mountain bike trail advocacy group. 6-8 miles of premier Kettle Moraine flow style mountain bike trails will be designed and constructed in the next 12-18 months.
“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 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."
