Dane County Parks & City of Fitchburg Will Host Open House To Present Proposed Seminole Mountain Bike Trail System
Dane County Parks and the City of Fitchburg hosted a public information
meeting in August of 2012 to solicit ideas and gain feedback on a proposal to
create mountain bike trails within the Lewis Nine Springs E-way west of
Seminole Highway. Dane County Parks and Capital Off Road Pathfinders (CORP)
have since prepared a draft mountain bike trail layout plan that is now
available for review.
A public information meeting to review the draft concept plan will be held on
Wednesday, August 7th, 2013 at 7:00 p.m. in the Prairie View Room at the
Fitchburg Community Center, 5510 Lacy Road, Fitchburg, WI 53711. For further
information about the upcoming meeting, please contact Chris James, Dane County
Park Planner at 608-224-3763.
On April 12, 2013, Dane County Parks staff met with bicycle advocates and representatives from local units of government to share plans for future bicycle improvements and upcoming bicycling events across Dane County.
On March 27th, 2012 County Executive Joe Parisi met with bicycle advocates and representatives from local units of government to share plans for future bicycle improvements and upcoming bicycling events across Dane County.
The 2010 Bike Dane Executive Summary Report represents six months of hard work from the bicycling community
across the county. The planning process began in July of 2010 and included several working group meetings
throughout the remainder of 2010. Contact Chris James, Park Planner at 224-3763 or

Dogs must have a Dane County dog permit and be on leash at all times along the trails.
