MoMBA Mountain Bike Trail System

Client Objective

Break through the mistrust between the recreation and conservation communities.

Active Strategies Process

Identified a quality site for mountain biking in the MetroParks system. An 80 acre wooded track just three miles from downtown Dayton was identified. Later, and 35 acres was added for parking and a trail head / even space.


Working alongside 60 community volunteers, the trail was built. The trail was then supported by a unique way finding system and an on-going management plan. MoMBA has seen significant growth in area ridership and has allowed families with children to ride with confidence.
