To create and expand a singletrack trail system in Sun Prairie.
We have been working with the Sun Prairie Parks and Recreation Department, the Sun Prairie Parks and Recreation Commission, and the City Council on the development of forested, multi-user singletrack trails within the city limits. While our initial proposal for trails at Sheehan Park was denied, discussions continued and singletrack trails were developed in 2017. More details can be found here.
Regarding the second location on the west side:
On June 1st, 2016, during the monthly P&R Commission meeting, a proposal for another location was submitted and the group unanimously voted to support exploration and development of singletrack trails in the Smiths Crossing Community Park in Sun Prairie.
In December of 2017, it was determined, from a wetlands delineation report, that there are too many wetland areas to efficiently, and economically, create a singletrack trail system in the Smith’s Crossing Community Park area.
Files related to both the Sheehan Park and Smith’s Crossing proposals can be found below.
