Mountain Bike Trail Proposed for Unused Property in Stillwater
A local nonprofit is proposing a mountain bike trail for a parcel of city owned land in Stillwater.
According to the Stillwater Gazette, the nonprofit Stillwater Area Scholastic Cycling Advocates (SASCA), which supports the high school mountain bike team, has proposed a one-mile, double-track trail be built at the east end of Shelton Drive, between Greeley Street and North Osgood Avenue. The five-acre property was acquired by the city of Stillwater through tax forfeiture and is currently sitting unused.
The SASCA is proposing to construct and maintain the Stillwater trail at no cost to the city.
The Parks Commission has endorsed the concept, but a public meeting and planning commission meeting await the proposal, the article said.
