Introducing Soul Dirt – Trails to a Healthy Community

Soul Dirt, created in partnership with Eagle Valley Behavioral Health, is the VVMTA’s brand new program to encourage sustainable recreation for a healthy 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 are more important than ever. They connect us to the land and to each other.  Trails give us space to move, have fun and challenge ourselves – all while providing an opportunity to volunteer and deepen our stewardship of our public lands. Trails are a valuable resource everyone deserves access to – Soul Dirt was created to address just that.

 

 

What We Do

Soul Dirt provides free VVMTA Ambassador-led group hikes and mountain bike rides for people of all ages and abilities on soft surface trails across Eagle County. We hope to create more access to safe outdoor spaces in our community so that everyone can experience the transformative power of the mountains in our backyard.

Need a bike? Anyone participating in a Soul Dirt ride can borrow one from our fleet of mountain bikes for use during the program – free of charge.

Who We Serve

Soul Dirt is a collaborative partner program working with other community organizations in the Valley. Designed to uniquely engage each community our partners serve, hikes and bike rides are facilitated for members of our partners’ networks.  We strive to support our partners achieve their missions by providing free access to the trails and their benefits.
