Mountain Biking

Trail Rating: Intermediate to Advanced

Access mountain biking trails from the Adventure Road entrance off of Springfield Parkway and the Recreation Complex Entrance at 971 Tom Hall Street. All biking trails are identified in red on the trail map and trail rules apply. Mountain bikers must either be members of the Anne Springs Close Greenway or pay the daily use fee of $5 at the trailhead kiosk. 

Greenway bike trails are technical in nature and are not suited for inexperienced mountain bikers or riders with road or hybrid bikes. Standard mountain bike difficulty ratings are posted on mountain bike trail signage. Bicyclists use trails at their own risk. Anne Springs Close Greenway accepts no responsibility for damage to, loss or theft of bikes or biking equipment.

Bike wash stations and a hydration station are available adjacent to the Adventure Road Entrance parking lot.  

Visit the Greenway homepage for information on trail conditions and closings during inclement weather.

Cost: $10 members, $15 nonmembers. Group size is limited to 6 participants. You need your own bike, helmet and water. Click to register.

Mountain Bike Instruction Course

A 4 hour course that builds on the essentials from the Intro program, plus skills to navigate narrow trails and manage obstacles. Additional skills include climbing and descending, cornering, wheel lifts. Very small group size allows for individual attention and mastery of skills. Much of the skills program is conducted on grassy fields, with some trail riding. This course will give you plenty of preparation for riding the Greenway as well as other local trails.

Cost: $40 members, $45 nonmembers. Groups size is limited to 4 participants. You need your own bike, helmet and water. A small snack will be provided. Click to register.
