Bike Parks

Bike parks are coming to many areas around the country.

Our vision is to add parks around our area. Bike parks allow kids, as well as adults, the opportunity to enjoy Living Life on Two Wheels in a safe environment.  

Living Life on 2 Wheels - Plattin Peaks Trails

Living Life on 2 Wheels has acquired a long term (15 year) trail easement on a large parcel of property located 2 miles down Plattin Road.

The International Mountain Biking Association came in and completed a feasibility study on the property confirming the over 40 miles of multi use trail potential.

  • Building trails for both hikers and cyclist, restoring these glades and giving the community access to enjoy this unique nature is our top priority.  

  • Dolomite Glades used to make up 400 acres of the Plattin property.  Due to cedar growth, the Glades now cover about 96 acres of the property. We are working with the MO Conservation Dept to utilize their support and assistance in restoring the glades.  

  • Not only will this project serve the entire Jefferson County community, but it will bring tourists to our area and help retain and improve the quality of life of our families.

In the plan, the park is broken up into 3 separate zones. Zone 1 focuses on biking beginner and intermediate bidirectional trails and perimeter access along with hiking trails.
Stray Trails, LLC from St. Louis
