    The Bureau of Land Management, also known as the BLM, offers thousands of mountain biking trails that exist all over the nation—from backyard to backcountry. The top 20 Mountain Bike Trails are now available on BLM’s national mountain bike webpage at www.blm.gov/mountainbike.

    These trails are close to camping, hiking and other recreational opportunities. Now it’s easier than ever to access your public lands through interactive recreation maps—giving you a fresh way to plan your trip! You’ll find helpful information and maps that are easy to use on smartphones, tablets, and other mobile devices.

    Each year, over a million mountain bikers ride on BLM-managed trails- that’s over 40 million hours of riding on public lands! These trails exist in a diversity of landscapes for superb mountain biking opportunities, from southwest desert singletracks that offer fun and scenic rides for beginners, to optimized trails that provide a range of unique experiences in the pacific west.

    The BLM provides outstanding recreational experiences with the help of our national and local partners. Our focus on connecting with communities to create sustainable opportunities for recreation would not be possible without our volunteers and partner groups who help create and maintain these special places for you to enjoy! So go online now and plan your visit to discover one of many BLM’s mountain bike trails today! Show less

  • Wilderness 50th Anniversary Play all

    2014 marks the 50th anniversary of the passage of the Wilderness Act, signed by President Lyndon Johnson on September 3, 1964. This landmark conservation bill created a way to permanently protect some of the most natural and undisturbed places in America. The United States was the first country to define and designate wilderness areas through law. Congress passed the Act to keep certain undeveloped federal lands "untrammeled by man" and to maintain their "primeval" character. To date, the National Wilderness Preservation System, which was created by the Act, includes more than 100 million acres of land across the United States. The BLM is one of four federal agencies that manage wilderness areas on public lands. We are responsible for 221 wilderness areas totaling 8.7 million acres in 10 western states.
