Portland Off-Road Cycling Master Plan
Finding good locations for off-road cycling in urban areas can be a significant challenge, leading to conflicts on hiking trails and in other locations that were not designed for bicycle use. In this first-of-its-kind plan, Toole Design worked with the City of Portland to make off-road cycling accessible on a city-wide scale while balancing the needs of all users of the city’s trails and parks. Our inclusive planning process helped City staff and residents better understand the benefits, impacts, and best practices for planning, designing, building, and managing off-road cycling facilities. It also set the stage for projects that will make natural green spaces more accessible for all Portland residents.
