Portage Bikeway

The City of Portage extensive bikeway system allows users to enjoy nature, connects citizens to retail and cultural resources and brings neighbors and neighborhoods together. Work to create the Portage Bikeway System set in motion in 1989 and it has grown to exceed 55 miles.

Portage bikeways are of two varieties: 

  1. A separate off-road trail or pathway for joint bicycle/pedestrian use.
  2. A designated bicycle lane / paved shoulder adjacent to a city street, striped and signed for use by bicyclists.
The Bikeway Brochure is attached for your convenience.
