  • The project will plan for a spectrum of off-road cycling facilities, including skill parks, pump tracks, and single track trails – like those planned at Gateway Green. Photo courtesy of Portland Parks & Recreation

  • Pump tracks and skill parks – like this one at the New Columbia Bike Park – offer kids, adults and families a place to ride and learn new skills close to home. Photo credit: Ben Latterell

The Off-road Cycling Master Plan will help create more off-road cycling trails and facilities in Portland. These trails and parks provide places for healthy and safe outdoor recreation for children and families of all abilities and make access to green spaces in the city easier and more equitable. 

The Off-road Cycling Master Plan will provide a comprehensive plan for the development and management of off-road cycling trails and facilities across the city. The plan will make recommendations for the future improvement and management of these trails and facilities, based on community needs and input, site opportunities and constraints, as well as best practices in design, development and management of off-road cycling facilities.

The Discussion Draft, and the accompanying interactive map, include draft recommendations on how the City of Portland might build more trails, pump tracks, and skill parks throughout the City. The Parks Board has commented on the draft plan, and BPS will make recommendations in 2019.

The Bureau of Planning and Sustainability is working on this project in collaboration with Portland Parks & Recreation, the Bureau of Environmental Services, Bureau of Transportation, the Portland Water Bureau and other local government and community partners.
