Timberline Trailriders, Inc., the long standing local off-road motorcycle club was pleased to present the Hahn’s Peak District, Medicine Bow Routt National Forest the loan of a new Bobcat E20 mini-excavator and trailer to be used on maintaining and constructing multiple use trails in the National Forest open to motorized vehicles. The Club obtained a grant for the purchase of the equipment and operational costs from the Colorado State Trails Committee, which oversees the distribution of OHV grant income, including OHV sticker receipts. The Club expects to loan it to organizations in the Grand Junction area for use in the winter months.
Timberline has been an engaged partner with the Forest Service for over 40 years and has been an active participant in the grant program since its inception (nearly twenty years). To date, Timberline has obtained over $1.4 million in grants benefiting motorized recreation on the Routt National Forest.
