The Grand Valley Trails Alliance is involved in a large number of projects in a wide variety of areas. Focused on supporting other trail organization projects, the GVTA also has several projects being spearheaded by the GVTA Board and Staff.
The Grand Valley Trails Alliance in bringing the trails community together. Representatives will meet monthly to plan, manage and oversea trail projects throughout the Grand Valley. This collaborative process in an innovative approach to public lands management that helps ensure that the community is involved in the management of their trail system, that projects are enhanced by the process, and communication with all parties is more effective.
All Alliance members have two representatives (one primary and one alternate) who have a seat at the Roundtable and a vote in Roundtable Alliance decisions.
Trails Resource Center
The Trail opportunities in the Grand Valley are some of the best in the nation if not the entire world. The Board of the Grand Valley Trails Alliance feel that a community that has such an exceptional trail system should highlight it in a Trails Resource Center.
We are working with trail user groups, land managers, our municipalities and businesses in our community to build a one-stop-opportunity for visitors to our community, a hub for organizations to base their trail efforts from, and a trailhead for trail planning, management and education.
With more than 10,000 miles of trails in the Grand Valley, trails play an important role in our community. A world destination for trail activities, the incredible collection of hiking, equestrian, mountain biking, motorcycle, 4-wheel drive, and ATV trails keep visitors to our area exploring. But the trail use doesn’t stop when the snow fall, we have incredible snowmobile and ski trails, too. All these trails are an important economic driver in our community. We are working with a diverse range of partners to effectively analyze what trails contribute to the economy of the Grand Valley.
Our trails don’t just create an important revenue stream, they also contribute important health opportunities. The incredible spectrum of trails offer excellent and very important exercise opportunities. Trails can be an important health resource for our community, but how to the community can optimize these resources will be carefully assessed and presented to the community.
