Logan City Council is ‘pedalling’ a strategy to position the City of Logan as destination for recreation trails in South-East Queensland.

Council this week supported the development of a new Recreation Trails Strategy incorporating a dedicated mountain biking component.

City Lifestyle Committee Chair, Councillor Laurie Koranski said mountain biking was one of the many uses of Logan’s trail network.

“Across the city, parks and waterways there are many trails used for non-motorised recreation and also fire access,” she said.

“Council is aware that some trails across the city are being over-used and this creates a risk to users as well as impacting the natural environment.

“To address this high demand for trails, alternative sites could be explored across the city to draw users to different areas, as well as creating a sustainable plan for maintenance.”

The proposed strategy is the first action in the Active Logan Strategy Implementation Plan 2020-2024.
