Central Colorado Mountain Riders is an all-volunteer, 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. CCMR relies on members and volunteers to spport its mission to preserve, maintain and create motorized trail opportunities for both local riders -- and enthusiasts that travel from all over the world to recreate in the Central Colorado mountains.
No matter where you live, we encourage you to show your support by joining CCMR.
Attend our club meetings and public awareness events to learn about advocacy - how CCMR works to influence decisions and promote community good will. Learn what you can do to help CCMR protect and promote off-highway motorized recreation in Colorado.
Our trail maintenance days are terrific opportunities to work with CCMR members and other local organizations that share our trails. Working with local organizations, BLM and the Forest Service shows the value that OHV enthusiasts add to our trail systems. Please visit the CCMR Facebook page for current events - or join CCMR to receive email notifications for trail maintenance, trail advocacy and other opportunities to work with the Forest Service, BLM and local organizations that share our trails.
There is no question that we face a critical public and budgetary environment that has closed many of our trails and are a real threat to close more. Take part in the public process to determine which trails remain open or which trails will be closed. You have only to look at the decades of extensive trail closures in other parts of the country to see what is in the future for Colorado riders if we don't act. CCMR will email members and/or post information on the CCMR Facebook page regarding public hearings and opportunities to write your legislature representatives.
Visit the United States Forest Service (USFS) and Bureau of Land Management (BLM) websites and see the issues we are working on. A huge list of publications and other tools for the recreation access activist can be found at the Trail Preservation Alliance (TPA), Blue Ribbon Coalition and Colorado Off Highway Vehicle Coalition (COHVCO).

Know What the Opposition is Saying
There are many active, well-funded and passionate groups whose mission is to limit or close as many OHV trails as possible. The best offense is a good defense. Visit our LINKS page for links to trail closure advocacy groups.
