Comments sought on master plan for Cook County Mountain Bike Trail System

The Arrowhead Regional Development Commission (ARDC) is now accepting comments on the final draft of the Cook County Mountain Bike Trail System Plan. The Plan, which envisions over 150 miles of purpose-built mountain bike trails in Cook County, was developed in partnership with the Superior Cycling Association over a three-month planning process. Comments on the Plan, which is available for review at www.arrowheadplanning.org/mtbCookCounty, will be accepted through July 15, 2016.

 

The Cook County Mountain Bike Trail System Master Plan outlines a conceptual plan and strategic actions for introducing over 150 miles of mountain bike trails to the Sawtooth Mountain Range in Cook County. The draft plan’s actions include expanding existing mountain bike trail clusters, developing a mountain bike trail traversing the entirety of the North Shore ridgeline, enhancing mountain bike trail programming efforts, and more. The two-week public input period will give interested parties a chance to suggest changes or additions to the plan before the document is finalized.

 

ARDC will be accepting comments on the Cook County Mountain Bike Trail System Plan through July 15, 2016.
