FOREST OHV TRAIL WORK
Community involvement, charity, and forest stewardship is so important to us. But our passion is the improvement, care, and sustainability of our National Forest OHV trail systems. Almost any day of the week, you’ll find us involved in one form or another.
We’re always on the look out for good people, looking to do good deeds. Feel free to contact us any time. Maybe we can help or get involved?
Check out our blog post about some of the Trail Work we've done.
It’s odd for an in-profit business to have a mission statement. One would think “profit” is the mission. We believe our type of business and stewardship fit hand in glove and in fact, can’t exist sustainably without the other. Our true goal is to give folks the opportunity to experience their public trail systems in a way they wouldn’t otherwise be able too. Some of our customers are physically disabled, and in some cases, they don’t even know about their public land. Our success relies on a question we ask ourselves daily: How can we tie an extremely fun experience together with safety, education, respect for the natural resource being utilized, and just as importantly, how can we give back?
We surrounded this entire area with dead trees, some from as far as a mile away.
Between the snow and people who like to shoot and run over signs, we replace markers on a regular basis.
At the top of trail 203 there is a jet plane crash (Airforce T-33) from 1963. The sign telling the story of the crash was stolen. We found the remains of it, fixed it, and re-installed it.
This is a full time job I don't think we'll ever get ahead of, but it's sort of fun to try. This is half the load we walked out with that day. We estimated around 200 LBS of shells.
In 2019 our trail crew member Chris Ashby smelled something burning while he patrolled the trail. Soon he found a wildfire burning off the trail about 400 yards. Between him and a few other ATV riders, they were able to put the majority of it out. Later the fire department and hot shot crew came in to do their magic.
In 2018 a local Jeeper went off trail and rolled his Jeep. It took us a day of hard work, but we were able to hand winch it into our dump trailer and get it off the mountain.
As always, we are fixing signs brought down by wind, snow, and disrespectful drivers.
