Do Trails Just Happen?

The quick answer is no.  Trails are hard fought and won and then it takes blood, sweat and tears to keep them maintained and open for intended uses.  

So the question is...Are you a member of your local trail advocacy orgnanization? 

If not, find out who they are and become a member.  It's cheap, you will meet new people and your support means better trails and better visibility in the eye of your community.  You can even volunteer and see what the buzz is all about.  

As the executive director of the San Diego Mountain Biking Association, I am constantly asking people on the trails if they support trail advocacy...there is always a chance for education I have found.  

So...do you have questions about trail advocacy?  Let me hear them!

Another great advocacy group that gets many trails built and maintained is the Vermont Mountain Bike Association, https://vmba.org/. Vermont is a small state but a group of dedicated volunteers have created a  trail advocacy model that has been very successful in showing the government and local businesses the critical importance of a great trail system.
