Mountain Bike Trails
With roughly 14 miles of trails, the Markham Park Mountain Bike Trails offer bicycle enthusiasts a challenging experience. Trails are available for the novice, intermediate, expert/pro rider, and the adaptive bike rider. Mountain bike trail volunteers designed a roughly four-mile trail specifically for off-road, hand-powered recumbent bikes, commonly used by disabled wheelchair users. This trail can accommodate bikes that are lower to the ground and often characterized by one wheel in front and two wheels behind. This trail is also open to children, first-time mountain bikers, and anyone else who may be uncertain if they’re ready for the park’s more rugged 10-miles of mountain bike trails. Helmets are required, and riders under the age of 17 must have written consent from parent or legal guardian to ride. Only mountain bikes are permitted on the trails. Non-specific mountain bikes, bike trailers, and child seats are not allowed on the trails. Additionally, pets, pedestrians, walkers, hikers, runners, horses, motorized bikes, and ATVs are also prohibited on the trails.
