The commissioner of natural resources shall establish a program for the development of
bicycle trails utilizing the state trails authorized by section 85.015, other state parks and recreation
land, and state forests. "Bicycle trail," as used in this section, has the meaning given in section
169.01. The program shall be coordinated with the local park trail grant program established
by the commissioner pursuant to section 85.019, with the bikeway program established by the
commissioner of transportation pursuant to section 160.265, and with existing and proposed
local bikeways. In the metropolitan area as defined in section 473.121, the program shall be
developed in accordance with plans and priorities established by the Metropolitan Council. The
commissioner shall provide technical assistance to local units of government in planning and
developing bicycle trails in local parks. The bicycle trail program shall, as a minimum, describe
the location, design, construction, maintenance, and land acquisition needs of each component
trail and shall give due consideration to the model standards for the establishment of recreational
vehicle lanes promulgated by the commissioner of transportation pursuant to section 160.262.
The program shall be developed after consultation with the state trail council and regional and
