BFGoodrich® Tires and United Four Wheel Drive Associations announced at Pomona CA that nominations are now open for the 2013 Outstanding Trails program. 4WD clubs in the U.S. and Canada may now submit trails in their area that they believe are worthy of a grant for maintenance or refurbishing. Nominations may be made via Facebook or Twitter.

Trails are selected based on uniqueness, terrain type and enthusiast following. “Off-road communities demonstrate true enthusiasm for the sport and passion for our products,” said Rodrigo Alonso, light-truck brand category manager for BFGoodrich Tires. “Being able to give back to this community by helping maintain and refurbish off-road playgrounds is our way of showing appreciation.”

Now in its eighth year, the Outstanding Trails program is conducted in collaboration with Tread Lightly! and the United Four Wheel Drive Associations (UFWDA) and is dedicated to the responsible use and preservation of off-road trails whilepromoting the trails’ conservation efforts. To date, the program has awarded more than $100,000 in grants to 30 off-road trails nominated by 29 clubs throughout the U.S. and Canada.

About the Outstanding Trails Program

The BFGoodrich® Tires Outstanding Trails program was established in 2006 to raise awareness for responsible use and preservation of off-road trails while providing support in the trails’ conservation efforts.

Both Tread Lightly!® and UFWDA are non-profit organizations dedicated to responsible and ethical outdoor recreation. BFGoodrich Tires collaborated with these two groups to select the finest off-road trails and continues to work with these organizations on restoration and education initiatives.

United Four Wheel Drive Associations is the world’s leading representative of all-brand, four wheel-drive enthusiasts. UFWDA benefits, developed and tested over the past 30 years, include four-wheel-drive safety and awareness education; such user ethics programs as adopt-a-road, conservation volunteer and volunteer trail patrol; assistance with new club formation; education seminars to aid four wheelers through complex state and federal programs affecting trail access; internet forums designed to instantly connect members globally; and unlimited member access to its full-time legislative advocate and nationally recognized attorney who works exclusively for four-wheel-drive enthusiasts to protect access and prevent road and trail closures. For more information on the UFWDA log on to www.ufwda.org or call 1-800-44-UFWDA (800-448-3932).

Tread Lightly! is a national nonprofit organization with a mission to promote responsible recreation through ethics education and stewardship. Tread Lightly!'s strategic educational message, along with its training and restoration initiatives, are designed to instill an ethic of responsibility in outdoor enthusiasts and the industries that serve them. The program is long-term in scope with a goal to balance the needs of those who enjoy outdoor recreation with the needs of the environment. The federal government recognizes this by acknowledging Tread Lightly!® as a sole-source service provider of education and training on how to be environmentally and socially responsible while using motorized and mechanized vehicles in off-highway settings.
