Mountain Biking

The Washington County Parks System is currently in the process of creating mountain biking trails at Heritage Trails in Slinger. This project is being helped by Metro MTB and continues to progress. The plan is to create 6-8 miles of new trails to the park.

“Metro could not be more excited for the opportunity to partner with Washington County Parks. Mountain Biking Recreation is quickly growing across the nation and so many Washington County and Southeast Wisconsin residents are seeking trails and new recreation experiences. Washington County was quick to recognize the need for increased recreation and approached Metro two years ago to begin exploring the build out of trail in Heritage Trails County Park. Here we are today breaking ground and creating something that will really make a statement for all of Wisconsin" said Metro MTB President James Mattox. "These trails are going to be some of the best in the entire state. We will have a little bit of everything for riders of all abilities and skill levels. Deploying the newest trail building techniques and features, we will have single track, flow trail with A and B lines, as well as more progressive Black Diamond areas built into the park with jumps, drops, and features that will challenge even the best of riders. This trail system will draw riders from at least three states away to see what has been built in Washington County! To say we are excited would be an understatement."
