HTA is a Multi-trail user alliance dedicated to cooperating on multi-user trail projects in the Headwaters region of the Rocky Mountains. HTA was founded by Derrick Nehrenberg of Juicy Trails and Mike Brown of Exit Tours M/C in the Spring of 2013 to test the feasibility of a Multi-user alliance to work on trails with the USFS and BLM. The whole HTA concept came about from a suggestion by a Local Ranger Brett Beasly.

Exit Tours M/C and Mountain Tech Motorsports have ‘Adopted’ Greens Creek, The only lower trail connecting Hwy 50 to the Continental Divide Trail
You need NOT be a member of HTA or Exit Tours M/C to participate.

We encourage all trail users to come out and enjoy working on the trail. It really is kinda fun!

We will be camping at Marshall Pass on July 8th 2017, then ride the Continental Divide trail to Greens Creek on July 9th and work until around 1 pm, then go for an Epic Trail ride from Monarch Pass to Marshall Pass on the Continental Divide Trail (CDT)

2013 Greens Creek Workday

AMA USFS Volunteer Trail Rider Patch from the ’80′sExit Tours M/C, the Headwaters Trails Alliance (HTA) and Tom Dillion and his crew worked with the United States Forest Service (USFS) on Greens Creek in late June of 2013 on a mutually beneficial project. We all worked together near the top of Greens Creek on erosion control to keep snow melt from running down the trail. And we re-built what is named ‘Creeky Corner’. The HTA arranged for beers, BBQ and Breakfast Saturday morning, and everybody got dirty and had a pretty good time without riding.

Triad Ridge Adopt -a-trail

Also in 2013 Club VP Sean Barr signed for the Club to Adopt Triad Ridge in the 4-Mile Area of the National Forest south-east of Buena Vista. Triad Ridge is a looping singletrack trail to the east side of Chinaman’s Gulch and Carnage Canyon. Triad Ridge was originally pushed for by Board Member Dudley Fecht.

The US Forest Service Adopt-a-trail program was one of the reasons for creating Exit Tours M/C.

Individuals cannot adopt trails with the USFS. For 2014 the plan is to work with the USFS and possibly do a few small re-routes on Triad Ridge.

Dates and plans have been posted on the Club Facebook Page and on the HTA facebook page.
