With funding help from the Friends of Dane County Parks, and in cooperation with DCP, we are making improvements to the trails, to address some erosion issues and improve the riding experience. The trails will remain more-or-less in their existing corridors but will be more sustainable and more fun. The work should take about a month (approx.4/5/21-5/7/21), and the trails will remain at least partially open, though there will be occasionally closed sections, which will be posted via the trail conditions page.
Please be respectful of Travis Bellman and crew as they make things more better.

The Wisconsin DNR has released a draft master plan for the Southwest Savanna Region, which includes New Glarus Woods State Park, and Mountain Bike trails are included within the draft!!!!! Now is the time to let the DNR hear from you. Visit here to offer online comments and/or information to attend the virtual public input meeting.
As the trails thaw and dry out, it's time to think about getting the trails back in shape. Spring workdays are a great way to meet fellow riders, learn how to care for the trails, get more involved, and get psyched for the riding season. No special skills, tools, or prior experience needed; just a willing spirit, a sturdy pair of shoes, and perhaps some work gloves. We've got a whole bunch of cleanup and maintenance to do, along with a couple larger projects; head to our Events Page for start times, meeting locations, and other details. And keep in mind that this schedule is tentative; weather and other complicating factors will likely necessitate some changes; always check the Events Page before heading out.
