Mountain Bike Facilities Master Plan

Lincoln Parks and Recreation has embarked upon a master planning effort to look at the future of mountain bike facilities in the community.  A working committee of mountain bike enthusiasts has been assembled to help the Lincoln Parks and Recreation Department determine what facilities are most needed and how they can be distributed around the community in order to provide equitable opportunities to all who are interested. Watch this webpage for updates on the master planning process.

The Mountain Bike Facility Survey was available from September 22 – October 12, 2022. 540 community members took the survey! This information will be used by the Working Group as they begin discussions about mountain biking in Lincoln. 


  • Discuss range of Mountain Bike Facilities in Lincoln and determine a Level of Service.
  • Recommend priority locations for facilities to serve the community equitably 
  • Discuss different frameworks for design and management of Mountain Bike Facilities.  
  • Discuss timing for projects and different funding strategies.
