At a special meeting in December, RCORUAs Board of Directors authorized the purchase of new trail counters.  The Board sees a need to collect quantitative data on OHV trail use in the Bitterroot so the Association can better focus maintenance activities on trails that are more heavily used and to help justify requests for construction of new trails to the Forest Service.


Great Western Trail Update

by Bob Walker with information from the Great Western Trail Association

Great news!  The Great Western Trail is now complete from Arizona to West Yellowstone Montana!  Mike Titus, representing the GWT Association, invested many hours in discussions with the USDA Forest Service in Montana and Idaho, with Bob Walker, Montana Trail Rider News editor, Jason Howell, President of the Montana Snowmobile Association, and various members of the Board of MTVRA to make this first connection in Montana.  After gaining all approvals necessary from the land managing agency, the Great Western Trail signs were installed last fall by staff of the Hebgen Lake Ranger District!  We understand that there will be a dedication of this connection this summer.  More details to come later.

Cooke City OHV Riding


The network of OHV roads and trails on this map provide opportunities for outdoor recreation not found elsewhere. These roads and trails provide access to lakes, a historic mining district, a ghost town, breath-taking scenery, and numerous hiking trails. Much of the area you will be traveling is part of a large reclamation project designed to repair damage to the land and water caused by historic mining activity. Please be respectful of reclamation and stay on designated trails.
