Join Idaho Pathfinders Association
Working For The Public To keep Trails Open
For just $25 per year for a family membership, and $20 for a single membership, your support of Idaho Pathfinders Association means much more than you might realize. Here are a few examples of how your membership dollars help to support our work to keep trail open:
PROTECT AND DEFEND AS A COLLECTIVE VOICE
Your membership counts towards a larger and more powerful VOICE when the need arises to protect and defend our citizen rights against trail closures.
ENJOYMENT OF OUR TRAIL SYSTEM
For all recreational users of public lands, getting outdoors and enjoying the magnificent wonders of our trail system in our Central Idaho region and throughout the Nezperce Clearwater National Forest, is a truly, rare privilege.
FUNDING EFFORTS TO OPEN ACCESS TO TRAILS SEASONALLY.
Your membership in the Idaho Pathfinders Association helps to fund cleanup efforts across hundreds of miles of trails through our “Trail Ranger Program”. Members volunteer in teams to meet at trail heads each late spring and early summer, to begin clearing trails from events throughout the winter season. Without the “Trail Ranger Program”, most all of our trails would be literally impassable due to fallen trees, rocks, mud slides and debris that block access. Seasonal access of our trail system is a commitment that we maintain in coordination with a partner programs through the local Forest Service.
Our mission to educate on trail etiquette
Idaho Pathfinders Association makes it one of our missions to help educate ATV and Side-by-Side enthusiasts on trail etiquette and considerate trail use.
It’s imperative to our enjoyment of public lands that we retain privileges by staying on trails and adhering to the 50″ wide or less dimension of the off-road vehicle you’re using.
OHV’s over 50 inches wide are prohibited from using the trail system and therefore, can use the many roads that criss cross throughout the National Forest. Failure to follow this mandatory rule can have consequences that would potentially eliminate trail access for all of us.
Through education of members regarding trail etiquette, we’re able to increase the numbers of considerate, knowledgeable trail riders that can make an impact on those who might otherwise become abusers.
For these reasons and more, your support of the Idaho Pathfinders ATV Club is important!
If you love riding trails in the Nezperce Clearwater National Forest, consider a small gesture of support to your local OHV club to keep trails open for everyone.
