The Vail Valley Mountain Trails Alliance (VVMTA) is excited to bring back our Trail Conservation Crew for it’s third season in 2023!
2022 was the second year of the VVMTA’s seasonal full-time Trail Conservation Crew (TCC). With support from our partners at Eagle County, GOCO, USFS, Town of Eagle, and the National Forest Foundation, we were able to support a crew of eight (8). These positions consisted of a core TCC crew of six, one Wilderness Ranger, and one Adopt A Trail Crew Leader.
The TCC’s focus is on trail maintenance, trail building, protecting seasonal wildlife closures, training and leading volunteers, closing illegal/social trails, designating/rehabbing campsites, communicating fire restrictions, educating trail users at trailheads, removing garbage, and generally mitigating recreational impacts on trails and public lands. The TCC works across all public lands in Eagle County, functioning as an essential resource for all land managers, agencies, and partners.
