Midland City Council to hear bike trail proposal

Community

MIDLAND, Texas (Nexstar)- The City of Midland is close to approving an agreement with the Permian Basin Bicycle Association to construct a multi-use trail park.

The proposed trail system will be located on City property next to Harris Field Fire Training Center in Southeast Midland near the intersection of IH-20 and state Highway 307, according to a release.

If approved, the PBBA will build seven miles of beginner and intermediate trail. There will also be a wider and easier two-mile long perimeter trail. The trail system will cater to mountain biking, trail running and hiking.

Additionally, the PBBA will work with the local disc golf community to construct
a disc golf course in the park.

The park will be funded through private donations. The PBBA and the West Texas Trail Alliance have a goal to raise $150,000 to pay for trail construction, park infrastructure, and ongoing maintenance and development.

Access to the park will require joining the PBBA. The annual fee is $30 per individual and
$35 per family. Members also have access to the already established Odessa Mountain Bike
Park.

If you would like to donate to the trail project, you can make your donations online here.

The project is on the Midland City Council meeting agenda scheduled for Jan 26.
