We are a coalition of hikers, bikers, equestrians and outdoor enthusiasts who believe that the trails that connect us to the adventure and beauty of the Red Rock are worth caring for. Funds raised by our organization provide direct support to the US Forest Service to facilitate establishment and maintenance of trails within the spectacular Red Rock Ranger District.
It takes a community to keep our trails healthy!! Please see our communities collaborative vision statement – we encourage you to join the effort to care for trails!
