Monthly e-newsletter archive:

With over $430,000 in grants awarded, a deep dive into our Big Water Trail to Dog Lake AxS project, and more, June’s Trail Talk has all your summer trail news.

Our Trail to Membership will run from May – October, with each month giving you a behind-the-scenes look into each one of our In-Progress trails.

Welcome to SPRINGTIME and Trail Talk, Trails Utah’s monthly newsletter featuring updates on our trail projects and advocacy work, information from our partners, events, trail jobs, and more.

We are so excited that this past year the US Forest Service installed both the new bridge and new signage for the Upper Pipeline Trail at Elbow Fork.

We love engaging with our communities – meeting new people, listening to their ideas, sharing what Trails Utah is all about, and learning. One way we do this is by participating in events. 

Happy New Year, everyone!
You were an integral part of realizing Trails Utah’s work in 2023. We hope you had a wonderful holiday season and that 2024 is filled with peace and joy for you and yours.

We hope you find Trail Talk educational and even entertaining and wish you the happiest of holiday seasons, as we head toward 2024!

We here at Trails Utah hope you are having a wonderful holiday season and that the new year brings good things to you and your loved ones.

We love engaging with our communities – meeting new people, listening to their ideas, and sharing what Trails Utah is all about. One way we do this is by participating in events. And conferences are wonderful opportunities to do the same with our cohorts in the trails community – federal, state and local entities and non-profits with similar goals.
