Do you enjoy riding on U.S. Forest Service trails? Did you know it takes more dollars to keep trails maintained and open for use than are available? A huge gap exists between what is maintained and what is needed. The Back Country Horsemen of America (BCHA) has a "Keeping Trails for You" crowdfunding effort underway. They generated $22K (45%) within the first nine days. Campaign page.
"Maintaining trails on 500 million acres of public lands is a massive effort. BCHA leaders work hard to prioritize and coordinate national efforts to keep trails open and accessible. Leaders at BCHA work with other trails interest groups as well as federal agencies on behalf of trail users throughout the United States. We can’t do it without other trail user organizations and we can’t do it without your help," explains the BCHA.
