Help us bring the Eagle Bike Park to life in 2023.  

The Eagle Bike Park will connect our community to the trails we love. For those of us who ride bikes, love bikes, it’s a no brainer. But for those who have never ridden, it provides a safe place to learn and build confidence. It gives intermediate and expert riders a place to progress to the next level. It will be fun, it will be huge, and most importantly it will help give everyone the ability to get out and enjoy our trails!

The Town of Eagle has committed $200,000 and we need to raise $150,000 more from you, our community.  Learn more and donate here.

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!

Many trails are beginning to close for the winter season. Please know before you go and understand which trails are closed and which ones are open.  Seasonal Wildlife Closures are going into effect to protect elk and deer during the tough winter season. They need to rest, relax and store as much energy as they can to survive.

Thank you for respecting these closures.  There are many opportunities to recreate on our trails throughout the winter where there aren’t closures such as Berry Creek or the Boneyard area in Eagle.

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.

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.

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.
