Mountain Biking

Greenway Mountain Biking Trails

Greenway bike trails are mostly beginner-friendly in nature and are suited for both new and experienced mountain bikers. Mountain bike loops are marked by a specific color. Trail markers are placed every 1/4 mile throughout trails and provide reference points which correspond to the trail map.

Access mountain biking trails from the Adventure Road Entrance (104 Adventure Road) and the Complex Trailhead (971 Tom Hall Street).

Tips for a Great Mountain Biking Experience
  • Helmets are required
  • Mountain bikes are recommended.
  • No motorized bike or ebikes are allowed.
  • Some trail loops are one direction: please look for brown signs with directional arrows, and be aware of hikers and runners on the trail. 
  • Be aware of oncoming cyclists on two-way traffic trails, and stay in control of your bike at all times. 
  • There are NO paved trails for biking. Only balance bikes are allowed on the paved loop at the Dairy Barn entrance.
  • Bike wash stations and a hydration station are available adjacent to the Adventure Road Entrance parking lot.
Mountain Bike Clinics & Programs

The Anne Springs Close Greenway offers mountain biking instruction through PMBIA certified instructors, including Level 1 and Level 2 Clinics throughout the season, plus summer camps and other special programs. The mountain bike season typically begins in March and continues through fall.

Greenway Bike Clinics

Cost: $50 members, $55 non-members. 

Group size is limited to 5 participants. You need your own bike, helmet and water. A small snack will be provided. For questions, please contact instructor at nrsmdwf@gmail.com.

Level 1
This 4-hour course led by a certified MTB instructor utilizes the proven skill-based instruction by PMBIA. All levels of riders benefit from learning and mastering essential skills. Initial instruction takes place on grassy fields and gravel roads, so even very new beginners will be comfortable.  Even frequent riders often discover a missing basic skill is hampering their progress in handling more difficult terrain. The program covers body positioning, braking, gearing, and progresses to skills for navigating narrow trails and managing obstacles. Additional skills covered may include climbing and descending, cornering and wheel lifts. Very small group size allows for individual attention and mastery of skills. This course will give you plenty of preparation for riding the Greenway as well as other local trails.

Level 2
If you've been riding mountain bikes for more than 5 months or have completed the Level 1 program, you are ready to increase your skills (and speed!) This program will build on the essential skills and help you solve challenges. Additional focus on obstacles and cornering will improve your enjoyment of mountain biking!
