Tread Lightly! Trainer Courses

Good morning everyone. As we continue to take massive strides in promoting responsible use of public lands in order to minimize impacts on the environment, other users, and future recreational access we are starting to look more and more to our volunteers. The Tread Trainer program started in 2003 to help build an "army" of volunteers to help support and encourage responsible recreation within their communities, and through that program, we currently have nearly 500 active trainers nationwide. Tread Trainers are equipped after a one-day course with tools and training to host awareness workshops, and provide outreach. Master Trainers are equipped after a two-day course to not only provide those same, but also to train Tread Trainers in their areas.

Interested in helping us in your area?

Here is an updated list of our upcoming Trainer Courses:

Master Tread Trainer:

October 6 - Rausch Creek Off-Road Park in Tremont, Pennsylvania

November 17 - Uwharrie Off-Road Training Center in Uwharrie, North Carolina

For you Colorado kids... All Stay The Trail employees are Master Trainers as well, so they can host courses at club meetings, etc.
