Wilkins Branch Mountain Bike Park

 

Named after it’s location, the future Wilkins Branch Mountain Bike Park will be constructed on approximately 156 acres of hilly and wooded, undeveloped land. This property, owned by Williamson County Parks & Recreation (WCP&R), is located on both sides of Wilkins Branch Road, just west of Main Street in Liepers Fork, Tennessee. 

 

When complete, this dedicated mountain bike park will have miles of single track trail consisting of beginner through advanced flow and technical singletrack trails,  downhill trails, endurance trails, a pump park, and a skills course.

Demand for Natural Trails

Locally, regionally, nationally and even internationally demand for mountain bike specific trails is growing, especially in expanding urban and suburban environments.

 

As a growing number of people live, work and recreate in urban/suburban communities, there is a corresponding growth in the demand for natural areas and natural trails within these communities.

 

The development of natural trails, including mountain bike specific, is essential in continuing to make Williamson County the #1 most desirable place to live and work in Tennessee.

 

Below are the current locations of mountain bike trails within the Greater Nashville area.

Partnership

The Wilkins Branch MTB Park is the direct result of collaboration and partnership between Outdoor Encounter (OE) and Williamson County Parks & Recreation (WCP&R). 

 

The goal of this private/public partnership is to provide the public with a premier free-use recreational mountain bike park in Williamson County.

 

Outdoor Encounter has committed to raising funds for the trail design and construction of the future Wilkins Branch MTB Park - an estimated cost of $500,000

 

WCP&R will fund and oversee the infrastructure of parking and restrooms as well as manage the ongoing maintenance of the various tracks and features as a day-use public amenity.
