Wanted to spread the word about the restarting of a very important volunteer program in Colorado! This is an opportunity for the OHV community to actively aid in the management of trails and OHV opportunities. We only need YOU, to help document what you see on the trails.
The Colorado Trail Patrol is a volunteer group that assists in monitoring roads and trails on public lands with an objective to mitigate improper land use of public lands in an effort to protect our natural resources for future generations to enjoy.
The patrolís purpose is to be an extra set of eyes and ears for land management agencies and law enforcement (when necessary). The cornerstones of the patrol are OBSERVING and REPORTING.
OHV users are the ones who know the trails best. It is our responsibility to help maintain them. Identifying and locating problem areas will allow us to work with recreation managers to solve the problems before extensive damage is done.
All we ask is that our volunteers document and report the issues they see on the trail. When you get home, you quickly fill out a report and attach photos/GPS locations and descriptions of what you ran across. You can think of it as a trip report with a purpose.
If you are at all interested in this project, please contact me at Matt@staythetrail.org AND of course like us on Facebook!!
