Off-road Cycling in Forest Park

Forest Park is the City’s largest park and its most significant public natural area. The park’s more than 5,000 acres make up some of the city’s most valuable wildlife habitat, help filter our air and water, and provide countless opportunities for recreation, solitude and learning. Because of Forest Park’s unique natural resources, preservation and restoration of ecological function is critical and is the highest management priority for the park.

The City is considering off-road cycling opportunities in Forest Park as part of the citywide Off-road Cycling Master Plan. Building or implementing any recommended project will require additional planning and community input, robust environmental review, and multiple approvals.
