The Rugged Ridge Trail Access Program continues to award many grants since first being announced in 2013 at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas. The Responsible Recreation Foundation received the grant back in 2015 and has made great strides since than. Their flagship program “Stay The Trail” has been spreading the message of responsible motorized recreation for eleven years now.
The grant was used to complete three distinct projects that involved the purchase and installation of kiosks and other materials. These projects provided much needed signage and information at three heavily used OHV areas.
Badger Flats This project took place on the South Park Ranger District in the Pike National Forest to install a variety of kiosks and signs. Volunteers helped install three sets of kiosks at two different locations, along with one smaller sign, and the placement of large rocks to create a barrier around the kiosks.
Mt. Antero This project took place during the annual All-4 Fun event sponsored by Mile Hi Jeep Club to improve 3 large kiosks. These trails were between Salida and Buena Vista on the San Isabel National Forest. This project was a combined effort to bring the 4×4, ATV, and Dirt Bike communities together to work together to improve and trails.
Mud Springs Recreation Area This project took place near Cortez, Colorado at the Mud Springs Recreation Area. Three large kiosk and barricades were installed around the Rock Crawler entrances.
