Do you support mountain biking in New Glarus Woods State Park? We're the Friends of New Glarus Woods State Park and we do! Mountain bike trails in the park have the potential for many benefits:
- Make the park attractive to a broader audience
- Allow current users to enjoy the park in a new way
- Become Green County's first single-track mountain biking venue
- Provide an incentive for area children and adults to be physically active outdoors
- Give children in the village of New Glarus the opportunity to recreate without the need for an adult to drive them
- Generate synergies with existing bicycle infrastructure to reinforce this part of Green County as a cycling destination. (The Sugar River and Badger State Trails for families and casual touring, along with the surrounding county road network renowned by more serious road cyclists)
- Increase the potential for winter use for "Fat bikes", even in low-snow winters
