The Trails Preservation Alliance is a 501(c)(3) organization, totally staffed and controlled by volunteers and focused on preserving motorized, single-track trail riding. This does not mean that the TPA will ignore other forms of off-highway vehicle (OHV) recreation. All forms of OHV recreation—ATV’s, 4WD’s, snowmobiles—will be supported by the TPA. However, its primary goal is to preserve single-track trail riding.
The TPA’s intention is to be a viable partner to land managers, working with the United States Forest Service (USFS) and the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) to preserve the sport of trail riding. The TPA will also act as an advocate of the sport and take the necessary action to insure that the USFS and BLM allocate to trail riding a fair and equitable percentage of access to public lands.
To accomplish its primary goal, the TPA will
- Attend meetings and provide written responses to the Travel Management Plans, Resource Management Plans throughout Colorado and Rocky Mountain Region.
- Vigorously represent motorized recreation on the wide range of legislative issues that arise including Wilderness Proposals and Monument designations.
- Assist in the development and implementation of operations for local, Colorado off-road motorcycle clubs.
- Assist the USFS and BLM with selected trail maintenance, either through volunteer work or paid, professional trail construction companies.
- Coordinate with state and local elected officials to develop and preserve motorized vehicle recreation.
- Hire consultants who are well qualified in motorized vehicle recreation planning and travel management to assist in TPA’s responses to the USFS and BLM.
- Embrace all appropriate actions that will “Protect Your Right to Ride the Trails.”
