The Rocky Mountain Region manages more than 21,000 miles of motorized, mechanized, and nonmotorized trails and provides administrative and
recreation access to more than 28 million people annually on over 22 million acres of public land in Colorado, Kansas, Nebraska, South Dakota, and Wyoming.

The Trails Stewardship Strategy will guide how we work together to share, steward, and enjoy a sustainable system of trails across the region. This strategy is not a decision document, but a springboard upon which all stakeholders in the Rocky Mountain Region can engage to collectively move forward. Join us! Together, we can ensure a lasting trails legacy for generations to come.
