Why is the City creating an Off-road Cycling Master Plan?
The City of Portland is developing an Off-road Cycling Master Plan to address community needs and expand opportunities for Portlanders to be active and experience nature in the city. The City has previously undertaken multiple site-specific planning efforts that considered off-road cycling use on public properties, most recently as part of the Riverview Natural Area Management Plan. As a result of this process, the City recognized the existing and growing need for additional off-road cycling experiences within the City. 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.
