From volunteer-led grassroots organizations to national nonprofits, Trail Trust partners are building and maintaining new trail systems, educating the public about responsible recreation, and expanding access. In just one year, support from the Trail Trust enabled over 10,000 individuals from underrepresented communities to experience the thrill of adventure.
Kootenay Adaptive Sport Association, Trail Trust partner and nonprofit organization, advocates for access, trails, and recreation opportunities for adaptive mountain bikers.
“Thanks to support from Trail Trust, we have been able to expand our reach and role within the aMTB [adaptive mountain bike] community, build and develop important policies, and lay the groundwork for even more access to sport and recreation in North America. We’re grateful for Fox Factory’s commitment to making mountain biking more inclusive,” shares Mike Riediger, Chief Executive Officer of Kootenay Adaptive.
When it comes to off-road motorized recreation, the Trail Trust’s continued partnership with the National Off-Highway Vehicle Conservation Council is focused on educating stakeholders about how to design, construct, maintain and manage sustainable OHV trails. Trail Trust is also working with organizations like the Nevada Outdoor School to educate adventurers of all ages about how to safely and responsibly engage in off-road recreation.
