Gateway Trails can be built in small parksâ€”next to greenways, playgrounds and ball-fieldsâ€”to enhance the recreational opportunities of communities. Gateway Trails introduce novice riders mountain biking in a non-threatening setting that allows riders to develop fitness and build self-esteem. By incorporating family-style natural surface trails, bike skills areas and proper signage, Gateway Trails stimulate a new generation of bicyclists and outdoor enthusiasts.
