Help us bring the Eagle Bike Park to life by donating now.

We are getting so close to reaching our $350,000 fundraising goal to build the Eagle Bike Park. We have raised $290,000 to date and we just received a generous $30,000 match from a private donor. Help us unlock this $30,000 by October 15th.

If you have considered donating, now is the time. Your donation will be doubled with the match. The Eagle Bike Park construction has started and we plan to open this free, public amenity in October of 2023.

Help us raise the final $30,000 today so that we can connect our community to our trails. This park provides a fun, safe and controlled environment for all to enjoy for generations to come.

Check out the most current trail conditions before heading out this Spring. We do our best to update trail conditions but we need your help to let our community know what you see out there.  Please provide any trail condition beta to the sources below:

All three of these are only successful with you, the trails community letting others know what you are seeing out there!

Please join us on a photo and map tour of the impact the we had on our community’s trails in 2022.

None of our trail successes would be possible without you; our volunteers, donors, partners and supporters. You make our trails great and our community a great place to live.

Between the Trail Conservation Crew, Adopt A Trail teams, Wildlife Trail Ambassadors, volunteer trail crews, and Soul Dirt…we had a pretty busy and successful year!  Please check out our StoryMap from the 2022 trail season and celebrate our collective successes together.

Soul Dirt is VVMTA’s newest program with a goal of encouraging sustainable recreation to create a healthier community. Through trail based experiences, we provide an opportunity for our community to connect, volunteer, and strengthen its stewardship of our trails and public lands.

With the power to improve our mental and physical health, trails continue to be more important than ever for our community. To that end, Soul Dirt provides free VVMTA Ambassador-led group hikes and mountain bike rides for people of all ages and abilities on trails across Eagle County.

Looking to join in on the fun and help out our trails?  Check out our calendar to see upcoming volunteer events.  Registration and details are located in the event on the calendar.  The VVMTA Volunteer Trail Crew meets every Wednesday night and the HTC Volunteer Trail Crew meets the first and third Tuesday of every month.  Stay tuned to our calendar, social media, and newsletter for updated information.
