Here's the background: The local MTB club is very established and was able to convince John Deere to donate a parcel of land to the county to build MTB trails. The county wants the park to be a multi recreational area and has proposed disc golf. The MTB group is leery of the integration between the two and possibly rooting against the installation. The trickiest part of the integration will be access to the largest part of the course. Their are two large areas on top of the bluffs that would make up the large majority of the course, but there is really only one main way up. The MTB group has requested research on the "best practices" of the integration, as well as acreage utilized in other parks with similar setups.

In my limited experience on shared biking/golfing courses one thing I have noticed that should be considered in a design is that fairways and bike trails run perpendicular to each other.

It's one thing to post signs on the course that say watch for bike crossing on the trail. It is another thing if the bike trail runs along side the entire fairway or even is in the middle of the fairway.

That type of design might end up being an issue depending on the amount of use.
